Buddha's belly

by Julie Adams

born from
Buddha's belly
I am fat
with optimism
and tho woes
of life leave me
perplexed
en-light-en-ment
I seek
in all things
and shall rejoice
in their
passing
as others passed
before, knowing
en-light-en-ment
often dances
with the dark

You've come-n-gone full circle with this one Jewels. Very introspective, can I rub it? Peace...

That revolving door is less likely to hit you as you pass through if you are able to extract the light from the darkness... right? Love..."fat with optimism"... very cool poem, Jewels. I am suggesting it for poem of the day.
