The white statue of the Lady Buddha
at the base of Son Tra Mountain
Watching bright screaming parasailing tourists
Overseeing selfies taken by hoards of bus riders passing through
No time to enjoy the waters she surveys
To imagine what lies on the other side
To hear the tide
What would she say to us
if we listened?
The chord remains
I quit a job I enjoyed at Founders Brewing Co. in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and left my family, friends, and beloved dog to join my boyfriend in moving across the world, in search of adventure and new experiences. I arrived in August 2015.
