Dalai Lama said, "There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called YESTERDAY and the other is called TOMORROW, so today is the right day to love, believe, do, and mostly live..."


Why does the little boat
Draw itself to the sea?
Let itself bobble and float
As it wanders the sea?

Why does the little boat
On the sea so remote –
Brave the uncertain water
Does it fear what has caught her?

Does the little boat
Make love to the waves?
As it skates and it floats
With the wise and the knaves?

Does the little boat –
On this sea so remote –
Watch for storms in the sky
And the world it defies?

How does the little boat
With its ropes loose from shore
Don the smile of a boat
Paint chipped in the core?

How does the little boat
On the sea so remote -
Not sink with the fear
That all will never stay clear?

I see the little boat
Drifting on the clear glass
Of the clouds that float
Whose light will soon pass.

I see the little boat –
On this sea so remote –
Has reached a sole serenity
And how it laughs at me.
