I see with what I am
and journey a simple way
through sacred space
in granted time

I walk a pilgrimage,
sun point in shaded valley
on fawn mushrooms
and lichen sphere

Maize colored mandalas
on trains going nowhere
rusted nail spikes
round twisted wire

Upward wings of ravens
the wind waits on still stone
trees silently
stand, listening

I walk with younger eyes
hands held by my grandchildren
up steep stone steps
toward the sky

 Catherine Eaton Skinner, 2011

The multitude of yellow prayer flags stand outside The Temple of Paradise, built by Bhutan's Queen Grandmother in Jakar, Bumthang. As the video begins the Kurjey Lhakang temple is seen across the field.
