Interrelationship by Thich Nhat Hanh

Thanks to Ann at exopermaculture and Poetry Chaikhana for today’s burst of loveliness!

By Thich Nhat Hanh
(1929 – )

You are me, and I am you.
Isn’t it obvious that we “inter-are”?
You cultivate the flower in yourself,
so that I will be beautiful.
I transform the garbage in myself,
so that you will not have to suffer.

I support you;
you support me.
I am in this world to offer you peace;
you are in this world to bring me joy.
