Songs From My Heart

Poems of Life and Nature


For many years Daisaku Ikeda has used poetry to express his innermost observations and sensations. He has given poetic voice to feelings that have emerged from real life, and from the activities of an internationally known champion of peace and education and the leader of a worldwide lay Buddhist movement. With a vigour and simplicity that derive from a style rooted in classical rather than colloquial traditions, his poems celebrate the themes of youth and of progress, and the mysteries of the natural world: whether a wind that sighs ‘with its melancholy chant to the traveller’, or a ‘great sky with its transcendent beauty and stillness’, or a moon that shines with the light of the ‘silver monarch’. These are poignant meditations above all on time, transience and the eternal – rendered visible through a palette of diverse poetic colour, and framed within a universe where all people are called to strive for a better world. Such a world is characterized not by division, but by peace and love. In that sense, these are verses expressive of the author’s deepest hopes and sentiments: not merely poems, but keenly felt songs from his heart.
