The Sacred Poetry Project

Poetry As Spiritual Practice & Medicine

Recent Poems

A Zen monk asked for a verse:

Poet: Eihei Dogen

“Mind itself is buddha” — difficult to practice, but easy to explain;
“No mind, no buddha” — difficult to explain, but easy to practice.

What the Hell

Poet: Hafiz (Ladinsky, Daniel)
Real love
I always keep a secret.

All my words
Are sung outside Her window,

For when She lets me in
I take a thousand oaths of silence.

Sacred Poetry Project’s Mission

All poetry that touches the heart, and enlightens the mind is sacred poetry. The Sacred Poetry Project celebrates the universal healing force that arises when we engage with poetry that brings us closer to ourselves, and what we hold sacred.

All material is copyrighted by the respective authors, translators and/or publishers.
