A Song of Silence

(Another poem written on a retreat, c. 2014.)

I sing a song of silence,
As words are hard to find,
When you’re searching for them
With an empty mind!
Although my heart is broken,
It has a steady beat,
And I dance its rhythm
With my two left feet!
I’m guided by the Dharma,
To where I do not know,
But if it helps me with my Karma
Then onward will I go!
I hope you like my silly song,
It’s sung without a care,
And should I reach Nirvana, then –
I hope to see you there!
