Artifacts have after-lives
they are downed by vandalism,
forgotten through neglect
abandoned on account of decay,
but the dhaatu of the dhamma
makes for resilience and rebirth
the devout gives renewed life
and worshipper and object of worship
walk into timeless unities
within sansaric labyrinths,
tarry awhile and then moves on….
