You could learn a lot
just sitting watching God
take tea with Buddha
in the tent at the top of the world.
They keep the flap open
so you can walk inside the quiet and cool
and see the small cups that you thought
too tiny for the hand of God
who after all holds the whole world.
That's why God needs to rest
on a cloud of cushions
and contemplate with Buddha
the art of letting go.
