An Old Monk

    A bud is plucked before could bloom,
    Friendly four corners snore of this room;
    What lives when that dies in whom,
    Leftover moist ashes of last monsoon.

    How whole about the hole that’s hollow inside,
    Only absences would reveal who resides;
    Death is life to miracles walking beside,
    Long back a named shadow committed suicide.

    Don’t wanna wear any number anymore,
    Again tonight’s slumber got sold to strangers like whore;
    Intuitive remaining counts of breath gasp on floor,
    There the end is a gateway to celebrating doors.

    Our I belongs to no right nor wrongs,
    Life is a series of silent songs;
    Thoughts bought by desires simply prolongs,
    Here hear a one hand clap by an old monk.'
