Tin Fish and Sleeping Buddha


A Tin fish
Swimming in silence
Buddha to deduce
Emerging dreams

Behind Buddha
A halo
Waiting to rest on his head

For a tin fish
An ocean is a dream
A pond is a dream
Water itself is a dream

Nothing can quench his thirst.
Buddha never wanted
To comprehend
A dream so liquid


There was a void between
Tin fish and water
Buddha and dreams

Buddha dared not
To infer a void

Slowly the halo rested
On the stillness and
Knowing smile of Buddha

Away from water

Without answers
Tin fish
Slept with Buddha
