Whole World A Single Flower

Silently a flower blooms,
In silence it falls away;
Yet here now, at this moment, at this place
          the whole of the flower, the whole of
     the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower, the truth
     of the blossom;
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.
                  Zenkei Shibayama, A Flower Does Not Talk
