How Many

How many births have I known
Without knowing the builder of this body!
How many births have I looked for him.
It is painful to be born again and again.

  1. Mahalo, Eddie. Your lovely quote and image today remind of me of the first line of a favorite poem…which I’m memorizing. 🙂 “I have walked through many lives, some of them my own, and I am not who I was, though some principle of being abides, from which I struggle not to stray.” The first line of Stanley Kunitz’s wonderful poem “The Layers.” http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/242450
