Colors of Life. {Poetry}

acrylic blue wavew
By Nazli Jafri
An ocean of blood courses through our veins
Passion and joy abound, traveling through time
A brilliant light suffuses all that it beholds
A vital energy, a binding twine
Hearts swell, beings enveloped
Waves of love wash over our souls
Darkness abates, radiance resides
The colors of life sweep in with the wind
Collecting shattered pieces of soul
One by one, painting them whole

The Tattooed Buddha

The Tattooed Buddha was founded by Buddhist author Ty Phillips and Dana Gornall. What started out as a showcase for Ty's writing, quickly turned into collaboration with creative writer, Dana Gornall and the home for sharing the voices of friends and colleagues in the writing community. The Tattooed Buddha strives to be a noncompetitive, open space for the author’s authentic voice. So while not necessarily Buddhist, we are offering a dialogue that is aware and awake to the reality of our present day to day, tackling issues of community, environment, and compassionate living.
