Breakfast With Buddha

(Brooke Branning)
© 2009 Brooke Branning

Eating milk and honey and drinking chocolate tea,
I sat down with the Buddha under a Bodhi tree.
Rousing from his prayer, a smile upon his face,
he turned to me with total love and filled me with grace.
Mmm Mmm Mmmm

I had so many questions. He sensed a rage in me
and said without a word, become just like the tea.
I tried to be an angel. All these years of pain
were hidden from the world. I was stoic and insane.
Mmm Mmm Mmmm

And then he lit a candle and drew a breath of life,
telling me to join him in meditations rite.
I closed my eyes in wonderment, releasing all my fears.
I saw the world enlightened, the end of all our tears.
Ohhh Ohhh Ohhhh

He took his cup of tea, the herbal blend he drank
And chanted to my waiting heart, Ohm, Amen!
Ohhh Ohhh Ohhhh
Ohm, Amen. Ohm, Amen. Ohm, Amen.
