the gods have turned blind.
our prayers are taken for blasphemy.
the angels have died on our lips.
in silence we are waiting
for the last snow.
it could never be whiter
than our thin bones.
the gods have turned blind.


  1. this photograph is wonderful!

  2. I'm so happy you like it. I took it in Nara, Japan, in front of the Todaiji Temple (where there is a huge statue of Daibutsu, or the Buddha Vairocana, which is said to symbolize the emptiness, Shunyata). Still trying to bring back the days when I used to meditate like this.
