SAMSARA

Sitting on the spokes,
he cannot see the wheel clearly,
being part of the movement.

And the grasshopper shall be a burden.

At the still point of the turning wheel,
Desire fails and the axle pole
becomes an observation post
for the solitary soul.

And man goeth to his long home.
And the mourners are dragged
around the wheel.
