Meditation on a mountain: five haiku

By Helen Lewis




sunrise paints the slopes

in semi-precious colours

pearlescent with ice



the wind carries the

tang of fresh snow, sends flocks of

prayer flags fluttering



rising up from the

monastery the scent of

sandalwood incense



sunlight glints off prayer

wheels, inscriptions worn smooth by

a million fingers



the mountain’s a sand

mandala, washing away

in the stream of time

    Sensuous decisive painting and concise fluid poetry.
    So perfectly matched.
    A delight to all senses.
    I applaud both.
