Tibetan and Buddhism filled summer, small poem

Hello and thank you very much for reading.

Recently, I have been feeling a strong urge to rest down – I have been enjoying bicycling, reading and spending time with a new arrival – “Uma,” a feline friend.  I am still kind of active in the local Buddhist Sangha but I’m feeling a deep need to discover quiet spaces.  This could be because of what I have coming up – twelve days of Buddhist teachings at the Tibetan Meditation Center, then home for a few days before the Tibetan Summer Language Intensive starts.  I’m excited about that – two years worth of Tibetan language in two months.  Whoa!  Thank goodness I already have a little Tibetan (Bod Skad) under my belt.  As a result however, I suspect I might have a quiet couple of months – June and July – where it will be challenging for me to post much.  I am working on some drafts at present, but if you don’t hear from me soon, I wish you a happy, fruitful and inner coolness filled summer!

On a recent bike adventure, I sat and took a break across from a little country cemetery.  This macabre poem arose:

I stand, a sentinel, against

sky vast and open, azure

gazing out across lonely graves

voluptuous muscle cars vroom by

a steady stream of bikers buzz across my view

one sees me, stops

another day; here I am

guarding worms and maggots

I, refuge for flesh eater and corpse alike
