Monks at Ryoanji

Amid the clatter of feet on ancient wood
  and chatter of the tide of school girls
  boys in blue
  and white, pointing, counting
  posing briefly for that “say cheese” field trip picture
  before moving on
Two pairs of silent round eyes stare out,
  seeking enlightenment
In the carefully-raked mystery
  of fifteen timeless stones

Wanna race?
