Round Luminosity



When the inward and the outward
are illuminated, and all is clear,
you are one with the light of sun and moon.
When developed to its ultimate state,
this is a round luminosity
which nothing can deceive.

Lui I-Ming
Taoist poet

Thank you Trev. The picture is one of my fractals, and it seemed to fit perfectly.

Smiles radiate.

FE LLOW BROTHERS

THENCE WE SLEPT AWAY,
TO HARDEN OUR CONVICTION;
NOT HERE TO FADE AWAY,
LIKE A DREAM IN OTHER NATION.

TIBETAN SEEDS IN ALIEN LAND,
NEEDS YOUR CAREFUL HAND;
LEST WITNESS, BEFORE THEY BLOOM,
COVERED THE BONDED TIBET IN CLOUD OF GLOOM.




HUMAN’S SIN


One night, it changed my thought,
The way I forward, through the
Deep, silent, haunted road;
In quest for the light in the midst
Of darkness, surround crowded by
The spirits of awakened forest.
My heart knocked, stomach crammed,
Neck pained and, the skin chilled;
When I stepped deeper into the
Abyss of strange unseen world.
The shriek of silence: stabbed my
Ears; the touched of spirits:
Trembled my whole; the breath of mist:
Numbed my sense into a dumb;
I continued drunken frightenly,
Swiftly through the trail of death.
I felt terrible, on that unending
Walk. I prayed hard to save me
For tonight, as I wasn’t ready to die.
Suddenly, thousands of different
Voice jeered me, “selfish and
Butcher will not have mercy”.
They are the victims of human sin.



COMPASSION




Who ever desires miseries,
Submit to the hands of avarice.
And who ever yearns his salvation,
The path alone is the noble compassion.


Pursued by one tutelage, culture;
But invariably confront the tortures;
Later, in me there arise the faith,
Ego passed off after my lengthened nape.



Who ever implored me about the god,
I never sham discerned the lord;
Simply apprise them, if there ever is the lord.
The god alone is the noble compassion.



So, who ever yearns for his salvation,
The path alone is the noble compassion.
And who ever abide to the affliction,
It is certain to suffer eternal damnation.





PHENOMENA

I often think
He shows me something,
I know it has no meaning
But, I still go On singing.

On him I rely,
Waited eager to fly;
He assured me; should I?
I turned to and he defy.



INDIVISIBLE INDIVIDUAL


Follow no one’s religion,
Neither lead into the fire.
All had tried and failed to solve
The mystery of our existence.
You too can’t succeed.
This is my word and
Remind yourself always.




ASTRAYED TIBETAN


Forgetfulness is the nature of mortal
But, it isn’t written in the blood of us,
To forget after years of Diaspora;
Gradually sinking oneself into oblivion.

No darkness of pall had ever engulfed
Our Holy Land; how sad it is to see the
Tibetan to sacrifice one another in the
Flame of sectarian hatred and intolerance.



We lost our nation
with the lost of our Intelligence,
and now do we want to loss Our Tibeteness?
By losing our last Possession of identity!

Worsening the war in the name of rights.
