Song of Stone Image of Buddha

 

 

For the long years

when you were in this big stone,

what were you thinking about?

When you were brought out into this world,

your stone face was shining fresh.

Now it is covered with pale moss,

as is with scales.

Rather than holy Buddha

you look like a dinosaur

who is now launching up to the Space…

Are you Buddha?

Or Dinosaur?

Or is Buddha Dinosaur?
