Samsara 轮回

Mourning a green lotus withered
before its season

The monk is chanting to free him
from all desires and notions of self

“My baby is turning into ashes!”
The mother’s wailing grips my heart
more than the hope for nirvana

Hair grey and frail
a mother waiting for her son’s samsara

少壮命早归
哭丧青莲衣
轮回成灰登极乐
慈母悲哭动天庭
