Thanks, I deeply enjoyed your poem. This is a fascinating true story that I also read about, and believe on his rebirth in a new body. I came to read your poem as a cross reference from my poem on Lord Buddha. Please come to read mine.

Technically sound but spontaneous as a hot ember after a fire, Cheryl's poetry pushes the limits of the American-English dialect. By combining the structural soundness of a studied poet with the curious wonder of a child-like spirit, her work illustrates the potential of the American mind. While Cheryl does God’s work “for a living, ” the youthful exuberance of her creative writing, juxtaposed with an honest real-world perception, conveys an indomitable joy that dwells in her heart- in defiance of troubling realties- to produce poetry that should stand strong among the treasures of the American canon. Or, more accurately and concisely, what Carole said: >)

The Best Poem Of Cheryl Lynn Moyer Peele

Manifestation Of A Buddha

A child missing for a year in remote Nepal,
re-emerges now 'The Enlightened one, '
the reincarnated Buddha, cross-legged
beneath a tree. No sign of ten months
of hunger or thirst for anything but silent prayer.
Bamjon, last seen by tens of thousands
in 2005 now has shoulder length hair
with his body wrapped in a simple white cloth.
People are walking to see him, to be touched
by a God, some believe. These terrible times
have called him forth. Molding him into
Buddha himself, who said, “All that we are
is the result of what we have thought.
The mind is everything. What we think
we become.”
And so he has.
