VESAK DAY

2016-05-21-1463847340-6484115-image.jpeg





Twenty-six hundred years ago

On the Full Moon day of May

A child was born

Who changed the world

With all he had to say ...





Though born to royal family

One day whilst on a stroll

The sufferings

He witnessed then

Would truly take a toll ...





One aging man

One very ill

And one who just had died

A sudden realisation thus

Ascetic life applied ...





Renunciation of all things

In Search for something more

A Quest for Meaning

To this Life

Not knowing what's in store ...





Thus Contemplating far and wide

Through Meditation deep

Till under one

Such Bodhi Tree

Rewards he was to reap ...





Enlightened to reality

With Truths so raw and bare

Compassion made him

Travel forth

For all to learn and share





For many moons he taught these truths

Till Forty Five Years passed

With Mindfulness

We carry on

His message so to last ...





Amazing though how synchronous

Such milestones all in May

Though Different places

Different years

Precisely 'Full Moon Day' ...



'Vesak Day' commemorates

This true Phenomena

The

'Birth'

'Enlightenment' and

'Passing' of our

Lord Buddha ...
