  On the mantle in my mindset's memory
     I see a Buddha smiling back at me
         cherishing this display:

   a graceful bonsai cherry blossom tree
   the snow capped miniature of Mt. Fuji
      New Year's Day, always honoring
       tradition filled with pride
        memories of the ancients
         hopes of the new souls
          thankfulness for all
           of nature's bounty
             given generously
                by an ever
                 forgiving
                   God
            
               Happy Holidays
       dearest b'chan and g'chan Shiba

I loved this!--and can identify with it. Altho' I am not a Buddhist, I do have Buddhas and a bonsai tree as well as Kuan Yin and Jesus and.... the list goes on! I try to keep all my religious bases covered! tehe

Eliza, hello! I'm not a follower of any one religious persuasion, but love the ceremonial thank yous and many many aspects of Buddhist philosophy and tradition, same as for a few other religions.

EA, thanks! I feel the same, I attempt to honor all of them, equally. My own POV and beliefs are a conglomeration.
