ithaca 417 haikus van satish gupta (kl)

Sculpture by Satish Gupta

Four haiku and a sculpture by Satish Gupta, India

From the Bo tree
a golden leaf floats down
– meditating
in mid air
Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka

Water flowing,
no time to pass judgment
on uneven boulders
Kyoto, Japan – Kashmir

In the amber sky
a flock of wild geese,
the young one
– out of step
Kamakura, Japan


Observing the silence
in the prayer hall,
even the butterfly
– stops fluttering
Mandalay, Birma

* The Bo or Bodhi tree is for Buddhist a holy tree under which Buddha should have attained enlightenment.
** The sculpture by Satish Gupta was inaugurated the 31st January at the Oberoi, Gurgaon, in India
