Poetry with a Buddhist Theme ~ by Harley White

ω



The poems are listed more or less chronologically, so as to show the evolution and progression of my understanding of the enlightenment of Nichiren Daishōnin through my longstanding practice of his universal, essential teaching of Nam Myōhō Renge Kyō.  It is my wish that others will be inspired and encouraged by these creative endeavors of mine as well.  The poems are offered freely for all to read, share, and hopefully enjoy.
