The resolution of schisms

Summary

and so the tale goes
of the Mahavihara and Abhayagiriya
the privileging of texts
selectivity in premise
cacophony of multiple narratives
and pathways away from path,
but Jetavanaramaya
a giant and a pawn
is as good a place as any
for resolve and commitment
exploration and conclusion
for the word is foundation
word the brick and mortar
the grand design,
spectacle against the sky
locus of veneration
monument that is vessel,
nothing more, nothing less
to cut through eddies
rise above the storm
and
just
stay
still.

Jetavanaramaya
