to The Golden Lantern
This site is dedicated to the spirit of Buddhist and
Taoist poetry. Please stay awhile and enjoy the work of poets
who aspire to enlighten and engage.
Our journey through this life is marked by suffering, yearning,
and the occasional glimpse of profound joy. As the karmic wheel
turns, our commitment to enlightenment grows deeper. We hope the
poetry on these pages inspires your journey.
We are constantly seeking new voices and invite you to submit
your own Buddhist poems or Taoist poems, be they haiku, tanka,
or any form you can imagine. If they invoke the wisdom, clarity,
and joy of Eastern thought, we'd like to see them.
We also enjoy letters
from our readers, so send us a letter and let us know what you
think or fill out our feedback
form and tell us a little about yourself. If you'd like
to exchange links, please visit our Links
Read more about The Golden Lantern on our About
page, and be sure to check out a new letter From
the Editor every month.
