There’s a poem titled “Coconut” (by Paul Hostovsky) on my website – bottom right under the featured video – that explains The Boston Buddha logo. In a word it symbolizes happiness to me. It’s about a father and his young son out grocery shopping. The son – very aware and observant finds “happiness” in everyday things like a coconut. The dad needs to remember that sense of awe, appreciation, and the exuberance with which his son experiences these everyday things. So, they bring it home and try to figure out how to get inside. Here are a few of my students reading it.
Check it out and let me know if you think my older brother will be the next poet laureate…
