Dharma wheel

Shattered in pieces,

and thrown on the floor,

cast off the shards,

I’m needing no more.


Pick up the remnants,

still shining with glory,

cherish and nurture,

to conclude the story.


Stick them together,

and fill in the gaps,

with glue of the Dharma,

to fill in the cracks.


Little by little,

polish and buff,

shine with compassion,

but that’s not enough…


Sanding the carcass,

shave off the excess,

contentment and calm,

shows nature’s egress.


Refine the mind,

and open the heart,

continue reflecting,

we’ve made a good start.
