Something Enjoy  –   That Day

 

 

That day
My eyes closed in the incense mist at the temple
In a sudden, I heard the truth in your sutra chanting

 

 

That month
I shaked all prayer wheels
Not for releasing souls from purgatory
Just for touching your fingers

 


That year
Kowtow and grovel for a long way in the rugged mountain roads
Not for kissing hands
Just for closing on your body warmth

 

 

That life
Trudging mountains, rivers and pagodas
Not beg for a future life
Just for meeting you in the way
