“Better than a thousand hollow words is one word that brings peace.” – Gautama Buddha,The Dhammapada

“Words
are powerful
forces of nature.

they are destruction.
they are nourishment.
they are flesh.
they are water.
they are flowers
and bone.

they burn. they cleanse
they erase. they etch.

they can either
leave you
feeling
homeless

or brimming
with home.”

Sanober Khan

May the words we speak each day be nourishment for our souls and for those who listen.
