breaking the code…

breaking the code

one day
two men
entered our village
seeking counsel
from bapa dola
as they sat
outside his hut
they could hear
mumbled words
quite
incomprehensible
when each
sat alone
with the teacher
he asked
what they had heard outside
one was
certain
he heard words
on how to plan
war
while
the other
was
certain
he had heard
kind words
on how to handle
the pain
of loneliness
after they had left
the village
bapa dola’s students
asked
how can such
diverse things be heard
bapa dola
said
in confusion
what is in the heart
is mirrored by
what the ear
hears
