Sonnet 37: Mandala

By Aurin Squire

Choosing to swim across the great salt seas
Climb Mt. Meru at universe center
Amass fortunes and give away for free
Pales to knowing the mandala to enter

Hidden worlds masked in front of my nose,
facing the 10 cardinal directions
Extraordinary and normal pose
guides offering traveler protection.

Pinpoint particles comprise the pittering day
Encircle each atom, each dance, each breath
Wading into light pool scattered away
All illusions in a molecule of death.

Send out and then withdraw the light from the heart
Mandalas makes each day a work of art.
