The Stupa on the Mountain
A Poem Composed by Ranjit K. Sahu
Up where the woods thin out
Into vast emptiness and silences
Of the mountains
And colored flags flutter in the winds
Strung in hordes with chants
Spraying peace in the tanned air.
The saffron and magenta figures
Precariously ascend the rocks
Seeking the company of eternal bliss
As the chimes sing out in their voices
Of infinite peace
In the expanses of untrodden mountains
Let there be peace.
Carry not your wars there
Bring back the footprints of peace
Tucked away in your luggage
That you deem are worth carrying
With you henceforth and beyond.
