In Wonder, I Stand

In Wonder, I Stand 

Void of fiction’s folly, 

I choose to stand in truth, 

at the foot of Kang Rimpoche, Precious One 

of Glacial Snow, Mount Kailash. 

I become the Buddhist sage Milarepa, 

defeating the Bon shamen, 

Naro Bonpchung, solidifying 

Tibetan Buddhism. 

Often, I find myself dancing 

between the two worlds, 

in one I am Milarepa, 

the eleventh century Siddha,

in the other, I am just a man 

now in the twenty first century.

In wonder, I stand.
