Haiku: On Buddha I

I woke up today.
I will wake up tomorrow.
Beyond, it’s unclear.   

Knowing existence, 
The Buddha had pretty teeth-
Vanity distracts.  

My teeth are on fire.
They distract form the peace around. 
It is hard to chew. 

Water and fire
Are more than we can control, 
And yet we want more. 

Violence in the mind
Shows by violence in the world. 
Make peace in your head. 

I am not your light.
You must find it within you. 
You can teach yourself. 

Upon his last breath, 
Flowers fell on Buddha’s body-
On his face a smile.
