I am but a servant in this temple!

I am but a servant in this temple.

Like this ant, crawling up my arm.

The ant, is my servant yet – we

share the same body.

I think of the Buddhist monk –

and his straw broom.

Clearing the path for a Lama.

The broom may hurt the small

creature but …

Who is to say?

The ant has no intention

to leave a bite on my arm

and I have no want to

shoo it away!
