I do not remember clearly;
was it Belgium or Srilanka?
Or maybe Himanchal
Or else in my dream
I saw Buddha
sitting in a giant wooden structure
like an altar, perhaps,
with a make belief tree branching out behind,
but a mourning in the incline of the lips.
The knees are blackened
by the candles lit by devotees,
a piece of stone had broken near the palm
and nails hammered on his elbow for some repair work;
the feet chapped and scratched
maybe while cleaning
or by some naughty children.
He almost looked like Jesus Christ;
and the branches behind Him
reminded me of the hands of Lord Shiva.
