Stony silence

Tracing the lineage to stones
We are indeed stones
Waiting to join other stones
in a blink of an eye

Being born of stones
We retain features of stones
Like the silence of the stone
in different organs in us

The stony silence of the heart
When transferred to the mind
Allows the mind to be silent like a stone
And permits the heart to blossom like a flower

Then, only the body will join other stones
and the Buddha will remain!
