With You in Kyoto: Spring 2004

Something I wrote the first time I visited Kyoto with my wife.

With You in Kyoto: Spring 2004

Kyoto with its Golden Temple,
three story statues of fierce
Buddha manifestations, and
thousands of wooden Kannons
did not bring peace.

Instead sitting with you
gazing at a small moss garden
deep in the belly of another
massive temple, finally brought
the contentment I needed.

Thousand Blessings Child
you are my prayer answered.
I feel the we, the I, the now,
hand and hand here in the sun.
