The migration

Photo by Neil Alexander for One Shoot Sunday

In the silence of daybreak they pray
in the meadow surrounding the ruins of their monastery.

In the afternoon,  they visit the towns of their youth
to bless all those that live there.

At night, visions of their red robes can be seen in the streets
outside the homes of those who set their monastery afire
as they chant prayers for them and all the current residents
with prayer beads in hand and joyful children at their side.
