Pranam to my parents.

My Mum says “I'm not really here, you know.”

We smile.

There is a deep Truth speaking from the emptiness,
where she used to sit.

These words come from her lips often, these days.

Speaking about something else, my Dad says “it's all in the mind.”

Is there anywhere I cannot find Truth speaking to me?

My parents, Zen Masters at 86.

I bow to them hands joined together at the heart, and end the call.

So much love to them.

Pranam, Beloved parents.
