Written for:  Carpe Diem #1109, Siddharta’s Journey by Guy Sweens

in the light of dawn
the world looks mysterious
a new day begins
the sweet sounds of birds singing
in the light of dawn
walking the path
from richness to poverty
enlightened Buddha
reaching for the deep truth of life –
walk his path

Here is my attempt:

long journey
my feet walk day and night
to meet each dawn and dusk
birds sing, music plays–golden world
where light meets enlightenment

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
