Treasure Island

Kathup Tsering

(1979 / Northern estern Tibet)

Shooting Stars


Stars shine brightly over the desert floor
Rekindling the light in my heart
I want to share this beautiful night
Oh, how lovely is the nectar of the divine

I reach out to catch these crystalline stars
As they shoot their might across the sky
I know they are adding light to my life
As my soul begins to shimmer beyond time

This desert with its tender days and tender nights
Has led me to the recognition of my insight
Touching the very core of my being
I shine and vibrate from within

In twilights call under the determined, lurking shadows
I gaze at the beauty within the eyes of the Holy
I feel blest, as my soul has been cleansed anew
On this day of illumination

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
