Chenrezig: A Poem by Xena

A while back, I did a writing exercise with my daughter, Xena. I had her look at an image of Green Tara and see what she came up with. She came up with a poem titled “Conclusions“.

Since then, she has asked me if I wanted her to try it again. Tonight she asked one more time. After asking her if it was something she wanted to do, she excitedly said yes.

This time, I showed her an image of Chenrezig (the same one I posted here), this is what she came up with.

“A caring expression,
Offering kind thoughts,
Radiating kindness.

The flowers he holds
Are loving,
Compassionate,
And very heartfelt.

His stance shows
A quiet soul,
Ready to listen.”
