legend has it that the Bodhisatva refuses to go home until all sentient beings have evolved to the point of ultimate enlightenment -- at which point he or she will close the door and the dream will have ended. I like the idea, for this sad world needs, if not real heroes, at least the notion of such heroic sacrifice. Forgive my lack of talent. The idea is all there is. K

Bodhisatva

You will reach home before me.
And for this I am grateful.

I will close the gate behind me,
and in the sunset of our completion
a gentle wind will sweep
the sacred steps of our lost loves. . .

Lack of talent? Oh, contrare.

How sad it is that Bodhisatva will never be able to go home. N'est ce pas? Meanwhile, I'll be grateful for his sacrifice and continue to dream of ultimate enlightenment.
