A Poem to Dream On (by Glen Downie)

Buddha with the Elephant Nalagiri

the creatures

caged in your sleep

may the great beasts bless and protect you always

the bears of loving kindness

the wised Blakean tigers of wrath and the horses of instruction

Dream untroubled by paradox of proportion – the ladybug bigger than the cat

the mouse as large as the elephant and wearing pants

In their all-forgiving silence may they love you in ways we fail to

these friends of first refuge

the peaceable kingdom where the lion lies down with the lamb
