Insignificant Dreamers



Under the Bodhi

a stray and I shelter

eye one another

his, flies- infested

mine, stung without sleep -

insignificant dreamers.

Man and man's best friend, each alone in the world, and each with noticeable signs of their plight, recognizable to each other, connect for a moment under this BODHI TREE. The irony is, that if these two are insignificant, then what is sigificant?

You have the most unique talent for capturing the moment. The reader can easily invision the entire scene so perfectly.

In L4 I would say "fly" instead of "flies" but that is just if I nit pick.


Thank you for sharing this moment.

This is amazing piece of poetry goldenlangur. I love this subject spoked by you. You have always a way of expressing.


This poem captured me, and you know how much I love these poems of yours connected with the tradicion and life. The moment expressed in your poem, like a germ stare at me as nirvana, but it got interupted by the " flies " / but still the dreamers are insignificant . Gl very debatable theme. You drew a perfect image GL.


I love this piece of treasure.

I agree with all the previous comments. A stunning scene and since I have been reading the Lotus Sutra- The Bodhi tree and its world weary dreamers become even more illuminated;-)


Well, well done!
