Flowers of emptiness

Flowers of emptiness
hang in a garland
around her neck.

Petals drop down her breasts,
into the hungry void.

She offers him a fruit from the tree of disillusionment,
'What if the beauty of this Garden were not real?'

How many skins does a snake have to shed,
before nothingness is revealed?

Enjoy the dance of bubbles
through the air,
knowing their dissolution
is imminent.

Flowers of emptiness
line the coffin and within,
the corpse of her life lies.

The spirit is a myth,
woven with invisible threads,
symbolising nothing.

Flowers of emptiness is the title of a book, taking a critical look at Osho's communities in India
