SECRETS OF THE SOUL- 6 BUDDHA AND THE LONE PINE





Buddha and the Lone Pine

I seek the secrets of the soul,
From the dewdrop on the lotus leaf,
Now precariously perched on the edge,
Waiting for the fall, to merge once again,
As the vastness below waits to embrace,
I stand a lone pine amidst this white spread,
Oblivious to the enveloping stillness,
And the chill wind that batters and bruises,
The Buddha sits as still as the stillness around,
Eyes closed, a faint smile betrays
The submerging of the tremors within,

The ghost in silence moves away.
