RICE CAKES
A smile rules the doll's house
A story now is told
Ever a cuddly audience
Assembled there to hear

The Buddha sits in silence
Rice cakes set in his plate
The sweet scents of incense
Rise to dissipate

When sticky little fingers
Of a urchin standing by
Edges close to Buddha's plate
His rice cakes to deplete

❧✿❧

garden Buddha
incense and birdsong
an offering
for ancestor's tales
retold in Spring buds
