This weeks Trifextra is right up my alley. As a lover of mythology and Buddhism I was extremely excited to see this prompt….so many ideas made it difficult to pin down only one….Here is what Trifecta had to say:
“Buddhist cosmology tells of Trāyastriṃśa , or the Heaven of Thirty-Three gods, which rule over the human realm. This weekend we’re asking for exactly 33 of your own words about a god of your own devising that shares heaven with the other thirty-two gods. Make it yours and have fun with it. “
Here is my bit :

Not knowing Listening’s wisdom.
Silently..telling of his arrival.
– the gate-
smiled thinking of
