PEACE MANDALA

The saffron robed  monks
stoop carefully, dropping
single grains of colored sand
onto the mandala of peace.
They rock gently
as the intricate wheel
takes shape and form.
They are drawn to its center,
closer day by day, countless hours
focussed to a singularity.
They interlace fingers
bow a collective head
and pray silently
for a strong wind.
