Annual Losar Poem for Year of the Wood Sheep

Hey!  This Wood Sheep year
Let's clean up our messes
With the help of Vajra flock
No more making big bad wolves
Out of everyone
No more crying bha bha
       Over this or that
Let's break out of the mould
In honor of the Noble Ones
Shine resplendent with our little lamps
a beacon of collective wisdom --
Unsurpassable in our shared confidence
That compassion is our banner
This year of heart
Over mind.

Poem by Jacqueline Gens
For my Vajra Sisters and Brothers
