heaps

For Ken McLeod, teacher and friend- with thanks for his amazing book, An Arrow to the Heart, A Commentary on the Heart Sutra

heaps

of loose change

in the drawer

mason jars full

of dusty lincolns

the shine

of the odd dime

the rare, precious promise

of a silver dollar

savers-  we are all Ananda

collectors, listeners –

maybe we need the Buddha

to die

nothing more

to hear
