Treasure Island

Kathup Tsering

(1979 / Northern estern Tibet)

Immortal moments


Life's shimmering candle light glows
but like the roaring sea or merciless wind
silent and ferocious, death comes at moment's notice
and the shimmering candle light no longer shines

Immortal eyes now behold the world
eyes with new vision see death as rebirth
memories encapsulated in a star
ever shining in mortal shadow

Though the last breath escapes
the music of life carries on in death
reverberating in the philosophic soul of the mind
creating an immortal day

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
