Grateful to the Buddha for lighting the fire, I bow.
Grateful to the Sangha for feeding the fire, I bow.
Grateful for the Dharma for casting away all shadows, I bow.

Dynamic and unchanging,
Ever-present and hidden in endless subtlety,
Dancing through the world
Consuming all delusions

Dignified on a pillow
Back straight
Eyes downcast
The world falls away

Tears of gratitude flow.
