An mGur (Tibetan form) about the true meaning of vacations.
Floating on a Bubble
Heat of a summer vacation
Burns holes in my feet and wallet
Wading in while underwater
Kids laughing, playing, unaware
Their future must stay afloat, too.
Tibetan form of seven or more syllables (I used 8), usually in five lines. A vehicle for meditation or prayer which often employs metaphor or parallelism. A little tongue-in-cheek, as usual for me.
