Uncover the Sun

Buddha’s Footprints

 

Follow Buddha’s footprints,

each heel to toe

pressed into stone

 

They will take you

further than mind allows

and body knows

 

They will last longer

than a life,

and no less than a heartbeat

 

Others have walked this way,

barely touching the earth

yet leaving deep impressions

 

Follow Buddha’s footprints

far enough

and there will only be your own

 

barely lingering

like dusty sand gently swept

into the wind
