Haiku Tanka #33 Calm in Kathmandu

My favourite place, anywhere. The magical, mysterious, energising, spiritual Swayambhu temple and monastery in the Kathmandu Valley. Arriving there as dawn unfolds awakens every sense in me, I feel it now, I connect with it as I write this poem.

Dawn sweeps the valley
The rhythmic beat of the drum
Monks chanting sutra
Incense drifting in the air
Exhilarating calmness”
