  • the day seemed to go on forever
    a deliberate act of meditation
    dhama web site

    fellow students on this day
    part of dhara-dhamma forever

    Eric (papa-t) bundled up
    sits on a straight-back chair
    like an old Rostafarian
    a long beard and a dhama smile

    Pablo reared in cold Germany
    his latino blood heating up
    finds a Quaker woman, gets a job
    embracing dhama with serendipity

    Howard, a sweet white whiskered gent,
    a half-baked look on his face
    waiting for dhama to turn him over
    turning to graceful aging

    Vanessa, showing plumbers butt
    polishes off stainless steel sinks
    till their brightness blinds
    all who come within her dhama.

    Jose with Brazilian dark eyes
    shoulder slightly swinging
    practices his metta walking
    close encounters of the dhama

    cuz David with beatific smile,
    sits for 45 days
    an extra gift of dhama
    from across the country

    finally but not yet gone
    my dhama any which way
    may all beings be happy
    well said, we all agree

    in the soul of the dhama
    Goenka on tape chanting

    a hint of enlightenment sparks
    a flame of liberation and flickers
    illuminating the dhama hall
