across the flood plains we travel
under morning sun
fording the ayeyarwady
along the ava bridge
spy the hundred spires of
sagaing hill
golden & spiraling
unto heaven
wind up into the sacred hillsides
ascending the thousand barefoot steps one by one
a sea of dust & haze lain before us
patchwork of sunburnt rice fields
thatch hut towns
& the payas
stupas
golden
temples
fading into smog

devotional songs soar up the mountainside
bird song in the burning trees
buddha every where
