I Saw A Buddha Today

I saw a buddha today

peeling apples

sweeping the floor

carrying crates

pushing a wheelbarrow.

 

I saw a buddha today

talking on the phone

flipping through a notebook

sitting in a meeting

smiling.

 

I saw a buddha today

listening to a friend

holding a cup of tea

seated firmly 

solid like an oak tree.

 

I heard a buddha today

laughing

singing

crying

whispering

inhaling and exhaling.

 

I heard a buddha today

turning the door knob 

shuffling their feet

sucking the juice from an orange

giving instruction.

 

I heard a buddha today

in an airplane breaking the sky’s silence

wind meeting leaves

in a car whizzing by

dogs barking at ghosts

rooster crowing at the new day.
