The Buddha's Two Faces--poem by Dorothy 

The Buddha’s Two Faces

One is the face of ecstasy.
Familiar friend,
I danced before it
long ago,
felt its sweet tremors flow within.

Who would suppose an image
on the wall, ancient master,
transcendent one,
would carry
such love waves,
bring such palpable joy?

And then there is the other,
the man of compassion,
 love for the world,
caring for all
who suffer
and bow down.

How can we follow one
and not its twin,
both together complete?

Dorothy Walters
