Year of the Fire Monkey

[Original mixed media by Ingmar Pema Dechen]

Ho you Fire Monkey
Adorable Familiar of blessed places
Resourceful, enchanting
Cunning when need be
Your chatter flattens the dolts of ignorance
When you take
Charge in a carpe diem kind of way
Your ballast of confidence
Lifts our spirits
Seer of the future
Interlocutor to lost opportunities
Let’s take to heart
The ease of your swing from here to there
Always awake in the fire

2016 Losar (Tibetan New Year)

These Losar poems are part of an experimental project The Mansion of Elements to create poems for all 60 animal/element combinations in Tibetan Astrology.
