Bardo bound

In Tibetan Buddhism, the bardo is the space between the worlds, or the pause between in-breath and out, a great psychic fermata, a pause between incarnations.    This longish poem in parts, was inspired by that concept, by a visit to Bardo, Alberta (no relation to Tibet, named after Bardu, Norway), by the continuing influence of my encounter with Lama Ole Nydahl, who is in my heart, still, tho, I have not seen him for years.   This was fun, and rewarding to write.  If you read it, do go all the way from the first chorus, to the last.  Bardo Bound
