blue Buddha/draped in white/mourning cloth

blue Buddha
draped in white
mourning cloth




now sits above the snow melt in my front yard,
Green Tara incense smudging hope
for the land of Basho ...

Grasshoppa (aka Cricket!),

Now, I'm trying to think whether the Blue Buddha originally came in that colour or whether it was the result of a later DIY upgrade. In any case, the Blue Buddha--aka the Medicine Buddha--was an auspicious choice for your earthquake memorial.

"If one meditates on the Medicine Buddha, one will eventually attain enlightenment, but in the meantime one will experience an increase in healing powers both for oneself and others and a decrease in physical and mental illness and suffering."
—Lama Tashi Namgyal

Yes to Medicine Buddha and Green Tara, may they intercede in Japan now! Lovely poem, Chris.

Look for the national haiku contest I'll be judging. Details on wwww.mytown.ca/pennletter in early April.
Cheers,
Penn
