Chrysogonus #60 - Borobudur


stone cold stair
a first ray climbs
warms steps
at a blink

solemn ascent
from dirt -
that first circle
of carnal desire

the journey is silence
to freedom from forms
in the direction
of nothing

dissipation of shadows
where there's no more craving
no more feeling
just light

Boshisattvas smile
when the light
comes this high
cast serene over stone

now green mountain
steps out of shadows
shown in the vanishing
morning dew

colours born again
in the sky
and on earth
a stone lotus blooms
