Buddha & Mary Jane

written by: Scott C. Kaestner


a monk meditating
in a monastery
of his own making

a ballerina dancing
across the page
twisting words into light

their breath is verse
and verse breath
poems are sanctuaries

places they go
to thrive or die
or just float for awhile

clouds passing time
they pulsate with the sun
in an afternoon sky

neither here nor there
but everywhere
they belong to us all

all of us looking for them
or something remarkable
hidden in plain sight

the answer is obvious
there are no answers
and the beat goes on

they go on
we go on
destinations unknown.
