Poetry

In Shangrila

Sunshine splashes

    frozen streets

Diamond light on

    crystal sleet

Tibetan girls

    churn butter tea

Grumpy dogs

    growl hungrily.

 

Smoke clouds curl

    from cooking fires

Tinkling bells

    on temple spires

Sky greets earth

    and earth says “Hi!”

Cocks crow loud

    as dawn trips by.

 

Cherub children

    laugh and scream

Lazy kittens

    purr and preen

Hawkers bellow

    lamas pray

Songbirds warble

    donkeys bray.

 

Hammers echo

    down the lanes

Horses whinny

    at their reins

Timeless rituals

    spacious hearts

In Shangrila

    a new day starts.
