A Midnight Winter Dream had me in its Spell

Woke up on a good day and the world was wonderful

A midnight winter dream had me in its spell.


I dreamt about two monks visiting Sarnath

They sat under a tree nearby Lord Buddha's stuppa.


They told me of the Beauty hidden in our foreheads,

They told me of the ugliness we show instead.


And when we put a foot wrong do we learn from all the pain


After midnight we sat up half the night

And they began to tell me what it was all for


I woke up in the jungle they had gone I don't know where

Don't remember much at all but their words were echoing

A midnight winter dream and then wake again...


(Very much inspired by the lyrics from "Midnight Summer's Dream" by THE STRANGLERS)

I took this picture on Chrismas eve last December, it was just before sunset in Sarnath near Benaras.
