There are always trees
but a white Buddha riding is not so usual
a slow ride too after much fasting
pale and thin from long hours in Banyan shade
red bull and gold fragmented light – spirit travellers
on the one way trip to Bliss

A brief journey in 44 words for the Quadrille #39: Bliss

  3. I like your take on Bjorn’s prompt for the quadrille. This appeals to the “Buddha” or “god” in all of us.

  4. We all see bliss differently but I am glad that contentment thinking, praying and doing no harm is a good yardstick to go by.

  5. Very apt way to illustrate the notion that bliss is both journey and destination — showered with light.
