Offering

with exaggerated care

I unclasp my hands

and offer them

palm up, outstretched

 

the dove thus released

soars off

it feathers the dawn

liberated

 

my left hand raises

finger to thumb

the mudra perfect

release the seal

 

emanate that jewel

perfected

in the lotus womb

scented

 

the radiant flow

of compassion

nurtured

in unconditional heart

 

Om mane padme hum

I offer you

Om mane padme hum

Om mane padme hum
