A solar Buddha
bringing peace to your garden
shines from dusk to dawn

I was sure in my own mind that I had posted this before, but cannot find it. Neither can the search this blog thingy, so for now I'm putting it down to another senior moment...

Hmm. Makes a lot of sense. Wish wisdom in us human beings worked the same way and more.

Interesting Dave - you don't notice the inversion until the second or third read.

Gwei Mui said...

Beautiful a great one for reflection :)

Derrick said...

Your words certainly conjure a peaceful image, Dave.

Carl said...

clever.

I may need to acquire one, might keep the sparrows quiet.

Helen said...

Hi! I have a few solar butterflies, I may need to go find me a buddha! Enjoy your day ... hope you are watching a bit of the World Cup matches.

I might like it better from dawn to dusk, when the sunlight is there first hand...

The best kind of loss:
forgetting you've forgotten.
Buddha would approve.

I have seen some really nice Buddha statues lately online that people have in their yards. Not a solar one though. Great idea.

Dorraine said...

I want one to shine on my garden!

I don't think I want one, Dave - would find it a bit creepy.

I really like this one, Dave.

Ronda Laveen said...

I swear I read this one too already. But it's a good one. And I would love one of those solar Buddha.

All
Inadvertently I perhaps mislead you. This was very much a found poem. An advertisement. All I had to do was choose which lines to use. I should have told you that and had intended to - it was what had made me think I had already posted, for I "remembered" writing about it being a found poem! False memory syndrome? I'm afraid I'm with Weaver on this one.
But thanks everyone.

Ha, I love it. I love found poetry.
I just have to figure out what to do with all of those Pet Magazine headlines......

I love your humor
