Buddha at Ayutthaya

Buddha at Ayutthaya

her god face is serene embraced by aerial roots
perhaps she is sleeping
or her open eyes can only see the inner sky
some human hand offered flowers stark against the black cage
of her holiness             in adoration
that will remain when the root swallows her face

What an intriguing image. And the poem heightens the interest. The third line is an absolute winner.
