Travel Thailand Haiku - white and green spotted buddha


the centuries dye
buddha's saffron with
white and green spots

one historical park i went to - it is either Sukhotai or Ayuthaya historical park - has a large buddha spotted with white and green.
buddha taught that nothing remains constant and that things are always changing including happiness and sufferings.
in this case, the centuries have confirmed that by changing his appearance from grey to green and white spots
