Enter the Jade Temple

Peace is a temple
to which one is (re)called—  

Buddha’s atelier;  
an open sanctuary  
of gentle acceptance  
  
Shikishi boards  
in the after light  
of an open window—  
 
Sumi-tipped bamboo  
kanji calligraphy  
Kuan Yin, welcoming—  
   
her heart  
a tea-stained chrysalis  
of fine porcelain  
 
We've returned in awe  
to something forgotten—  
a silken creation of her loom  
weaving ancient knowledge  
 
We languidly bathe    
in such solace and truth
