Kelani Viharaya

What is the underside of delicate 
if not the coarse,
what is the reverse of  transience 
if not firm of faith,
where is the resolution 
of opposites
the unity of  the disparate 
what is the name of that mark
whner lay ends and bikkhu begins,
where is the path 
and what signs say 
‘this way is illusion
and that, 
it is not known
but will be
by and by,
it is believed.
