KT (1979 / Northern estern Tibet)


The cuckoo bird flew North
while the snow flower bade farewell to summer
winter`s heart saw a crystal vision fall softly to earth
spreading white flakes upon the ground

Hope spread under burdened feet
a life full of cold was all I had known
onward I went on my journey
one necessary to take

Rivers of thought flowed through me
my parent`s memory, far back home, came forth
life for them was harsh under the winds
of those snow covered mountains

With home and land far behind me I felt winter pains
I knew there would be a better life ahead
and my soaring thoughts took winged flight
high into the light-blue sky

Winter had now lost its snow
as a fresh clear light shown from above
I was nurtured and filled with faith and determination
to make the world a white one would be my goal
the goal of my open heart
