Temple 1 Haiku

palms turned to heaven
give receive hands closed at heart
inward journey out

close eyes bow head
Mara cries from the Vulture
our song drifts along breeze

lift away earth pain
hummingbird wings kiss my soul
healing vibrations

Written for Carpe Diem #389
Today we start our Shikoku Pilgrimage.
We will make our way to the 88 temples on the Isle of Shikoku

The first temple is Ryozenji at Naruto in Tokushima Prefecture which is also called “Vultures Peak”, named after a sermon given by Buddha while he was there.
