Incarnate Valentine

The sun on a pair of finches bled
is happiness the loss of suffering
liberation from the pain
of this existence
as Buddha said to begin
with the knowledge of sorrow
sparrows on a fallen bough
and how not to return
to this illusory world
of the body and the senses
or is it more like practice
carried over from lifetime
to lifetime the tortoise good
finally catching up with
the hares of wisdom
and nothing that ever happened
wasted or worthless
in the end
