the Buddhas statues are still
exuding peace and compassion.
The insects and midges are dancing
in the lazy evening air.
The trees serenade us
as the wind plays their branches
like a harp.
The gentle murmur of conversation
floats on the light evening breeze.
The time of meditation draws near.
Everything moves towards a gentle quiet,
joining the Buddhas in peace and compassion.
