Small Desires

running downhill
                      I fall through
                           the autumn sky

As a six-year-old I used to dream of impossible things ... the things that went into the making of a Superman or a Batman, the power that supported Hanuman's leap across the Indian Ocean to Sri Lanka, becoming one with those "Secret Seven" characters that rocked my years in middle school ...

I've not changed.

Tibetan bell
with a wooden stick
I circle Aum
