Clouds on 
Hanover   Street

The Gardens (25)

In Blessington Gardens I

sat near a pond of lilies and in

the distance I saw a Buddhist monk

walking in meditation and I grabbed

his eyes with mine and he smiled.

Later, much later, I saw a young girl

wander towards the pond looking

for a ball and I asked her what her name was

and she said her name was Grace
