Waking Compassion -- Poetry 2011



Even with one eye open
the day was too heavy…
Pulling the landscape over her form,
she nestled beneath forested hills;
warm breath fog diffused morning light
coating ferns and leaves with prisms.
Babbling brook fed sunlit pools chanting
cleansing renewal; mantra rose and fell
with each remote inhale and exhale.
Sun burning off fog burst through curtains...
waking to her own voice mumbling, her
lips chaperoned Om Mani Padma Hum

1/29/2011

In Tibetan Buddhism the most common prayer, found everywhere, is Om Mani Padma Hum, the mantra of Chenrezi, the Buddha of compassion
