Hampi

The gods’ ancient tumbling was
Monumental, come to rest now
Balanced on a sun-warmed shoulder
Running through this valley

Vein of quartz, rose and rust
Thread and mirrors, fire and bells
Goatherd at the aqueduct
Monkeys in the graveyard

Rama sent me to find you
Asleep by the river

Arise and we’ll walk on sunburned soles
To the shadow cool place
Where the five headed cobra appeared
And a thousand year old tree
Reaches its roots down from the sky

Arise and we’ll find the sage inside
Whose eternal stillness
Keeps drawing us into the cave
Where powder and oil and smoke
Tell the gods we have witnessed their works
