You always considered
yourself lucky
because things seemed
to work out
the way you wanted.

Now luck has a different meaning.

Lucky to be walking a Path
that finds peace
in the arising
and passing

of how things
work out
or don’t.

From “The First Free Women: Poems of the Early Buddhist Nuns”
Translated by Matty Weingast
Shambhala, 2020
