Stones Piled One Above the Other
on the Shore

I don’t know who did this,
but see,
how they are balanced
so perfectly,
each climbing
on the shoulders
of the other,
following the line
toward heaven.

At first,
I thought it was
a symbol
of the chakras,
each mounting in turn
as they ascended
toward the one

And then I discovered no,
the count was not right,
there was one—
or was it two?—
left over,
extended beyond the bounds,
making their own way upward.

But then I thought of Buddha,
how the spirit sits
above the crown,
yet another resting
over him,
in infinite
until at last
all Buddhas
vanish into
the nothingness
which is.
