"[This book] embodies the Buddhist wisdom about change, life, and the
world more than anything written after the events of that day."

In honor of World Poetry Day and the first day of spring and the fifth anniversary of Twitter, The New York Times today asks readers to tweet a 140-character poem. (They provide four "poetweets," including one from the inimitable Billy Collins.)

My offering, sent to the New York Times Twitter account set up for submissions (#poetweet):

we r thrushes in the blind
we r a faint breeze thru the reeds
rustling the thicket
& the good earth
& the ether
tweeting 4 spring

...JUST FYI...and by the by: My Twitter feed is accessible on via Ernieb1414 or dfriend@vf.com.
