Buddha's Sermons in Stone

T  h  o  u  s  a  n  d  s
of hands
surrounding the
serene head
of a benevolent Buddha

carvings  of
fertility Buddha
laughing Buddha
arranged on shelves
for  the visitors

in Dazu
in rain and wind
umbrellas of multicolours
climbing up and down

today many
heard stones
speak silently
with their own
silent voices
beating against
their footsteps

climbing up and
down the rock-cut
stairs of
longevity
good luck
power
prosperity
sacrifice
suffering

climbing up and
down the rock-cut
stairs on
the cliffs of Baoding
in Dazu
 
today many
heard their
voices mingling
silently
with the silent
sermons in stone
 
and the sounds
of their footsteps
touching the chords
of their souls
 
gently
 
Dazu: Dazu County (160 km to the west of Chongqing) in Sichuan Province in China famous for carved stone figures relating mainly to Buddhism.
