Eternal Sleepers

If you ever wake up from sleep

And look onto my eyes to ask:

Why did I deny that thirsty bird

To drink the last drop of dew?

Why didn’t I disclose your fate,

Or show the stairway to heaven?

I’ll part with my saffron cloak

And dive into the sunset sea,

To let your Buddha blossom in

The garden of this selfish giant…
