Dhamma Lines

Every word is made for elaboration
for 'bulbing' and 'flagging'
for assertion of faith
in non-faithful ways,
made for coloring
and blinding
a cheering that dulls
the healing chant
the gathas, the pirith

rebelling even
again the thun-sutra

every word is observable in breach
and yet,
in and out of color
facing the blinding light
and in quieter shades

of stupa and bo tree
there is word-reflection
adhering affirmation
for words can be clap
and can be clasp

some are lit
and others light,
this Vesak
and always.
