Description

Welcome.
I am happy that our paths have crossed. Here you will find various poems, articles and photography. I hope that you enjoy them and visit often. I am currently working on writing “A Haiku A Day” so that I can, perhaps, have enough good ones for publication. If you are wondering what a “Fierce Buddhist” the following declaration should clarify.

As a Veteran I served my Country to make sure that the Constitution was upheld. Now, I feel compelled to defend that same document. The oath I took is as follows:

“I, William Sheehan, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; “

As a Buddhist, I also have an obligation to do what I can to benefit all sentient beings, not just the privileged few. If I see something or someone that is hurting others I must step forward and do what I can to assist them.

In Buddhism this is called a Fierce Bodhisattva. I am only on the path to Enlightenment and can only say to be a Fierce Buddhist.

I hope you will read, think and act.
