*Samsara

Oh! I watch this wonderful game in a lonely park.
A millionaire strikes a small ball with his iron club
And it flies to infinity,
He goes behind that happily.
The poor sinner caddy too crawls towards him
with a heavy bag that full of debts on his oblique shoulder.

*[ The endless journey, what 'Buddha' explains; cycle of unlimited births & deaths.]

    The first moves onwards happily and in a mood of victory and the second follows only in compulsion to earn his livelihood...

    Interesting take on what Twain called 'a good walk spoiled.'
    Terse and thought-provoking.

    Your comment on the different levels of society is especially telling because you do not tell us what to think - you simply draw a picture and let us draw our own conclusions.

    A very sharp comment on the world as we know it. - Will

    You take an ordinary incident and imbue it with great spiritual and social significance. The vase you share is humbly thrown. The wisdom of its fine glaze is profound. Another fabulous poem. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
