Imagining the Buddha

Delicate is advocated practice
and truth let’s say resides
between grip and nonchalance
delicate is the hand that crafts
posture and countenance
in ways that inspire
ways that prompt reflection
delicate has to be the eye
to reproduce the unblemished
to obtain from granite
compassion unparalleled.

[Inspired by the line drawing of the Galvihara Buddha statue by Gamini Abeykoon]
