Samsara Daydreams  Samsara. The soft green blades caress my soles As the cool breeze gently kisses my face Reflections in the mirror Shaky images of white and blue Surrounded in a golden hue An ever growing distant space Between here and there The grumbling halts The humans fall silent Everything else comes alive Flames from below Water to the side This is where I reside.
