Land of Misty Mountains

monsoonal rains

infinity of water

in sea, from sky

mist, rain, rivers

on bodies, sweat

then rain, then sweat.


Land of constant change

menopausal woman

passion, opinion, change

search for balance

search for meaning

search for truth



Land of acceptance

contentment maybe

or resignation

old and new dance

time-rich culture

some poor; quite

but poverty?


Land of kindness

hands on flesh

man/woman equal

children smile

respect for the old


welcome stranger.


Land of Misty Mountains

find the truth

and be free;


and be loved

thank you
