The Great Buddha at Kamakura

ph-10056The Great Buddha at Kamakura

You sit there so quiet

contemplative

meditative and grand

with that peaceful look

upon your bronze face

and heavy hands folded

in your lap.

Gazing straight ahead

you’ve watched the seasons

come and go-

from delicate Japanese springs

of pink and white cherry blossoms

to the vibrant red and golden

maple autumns.

You’ve sat here silently,

patiently marked your time

for the faithful who seek

your dharma greatness.

Not even a tidal wave

could wash away

your presence.
