Coming?

Coming? written by Dr. MOLLY JOSEPH at Spillwords.comLulled by 
             the river
that flows
             so smooth
the mansion 
             stretches
into
          shores
of spiritual 
             solace…

We cross
      the wooden bridge
where
      history sleeps
on carvings
               etchedComing? written by Dr. MOLLY JOSEPH at Spillwords.com
through 
            ages…

a gentle wind
        brushes past
ushering you
          to peepal shades
while
       white pebbles
glow
        in mid noon
glare 
            on shore…

Coming?

         we can
join the chants
           that clang,
 echo
        the tapestried
interiors..

butter candles
                  flicker
in faith….

Buddha 
         sits 
composed
     in lotus stance..
watching….

leave your
             burdens
out..
       at least
outside
       with your
footwear…

this island 
          of solace
is yours…
