'Infinite Light'

Journal of Shin Buddhism

Poem by Jim Reels

Namu Amida Butsu



With Amida's name
ever on my lips
I walk the sometimes happy
sometimes sad road of life
from drinking coffee or playing
with my kids and going to work
or even making love
one day these things shall pass
and so shall I
only let me pass with Amida's name
on my lips.
Namu Amida Butsu
