Thich Nhat Hanh-Kiss the Earth-Poem and Music

Kiss The Earth

Walk and touch peace every moment.

Walk and touch happiness every moment.

Each step brings a fresh breeze.

Each step makes a flower bloom.

Kiss the Earth with your feet.

Bring the Earth your love and happiness.

The Earth will be safe

when we feel safe in ourselves.

by Thich Nhat Hanh


Below, are some images of our amazing, beautiful planet.  And while you ponder, for your musical enjoyment, here is the piano artistry of Philip Aaberg, playing his composition, “Earth Abides” from the incredible lovely A Winter’s Solstice III from Windham Hill.

I invite you to stop and  rest.  Come back to yourself. Just breathe, as you listen to this lovely music and open your heart to the images. Breathing in.  Breathing out.  Here. Now. Only this.


May the hearts of all beings be filled with happiness and peace!

  1. What makes poetry so wonderful is the fact that it involves all of life, every concern, every desire, and every feeling. If something has some great significance to a person’s existence, then it has a great significance in poetry as well.

  2. Not sure which breath I love best. The first or the last. Or that one, or the next one, or . . .

    Thanks for the panarama loving kindness and compassion.
