declining sun shades shifting pale pastels,
big fish jump & flop,
bells undulate round sounds down from the ashram
cows amble doe-eyed along the bridge
monkeys scrutinize the scene from suspension wires,
Vandip sits in front of me, happy,
thinking of nothing at all.
body erect &
swaying with his mantra’s meter,
mind clear &
lit from within.
