Golden Triangle, Golden Thailand


25 copy


In the Kingdom of Siam

sitting Buddha everywhere

avatar of divine, calming presence

sentinel of peace and respect


Verdant space,

jungle magic and mysticism,

elephants that paint and protect,

symbols of strength and patience


Rice farmer, shopkeeper, doorman, teacher:

each welcoming in traditional greeting,

prayer-like palms pressed toward heaven,

weapon-less gesture bestowing friendship


Black House, White Temple:

mausoleums to vault artistic whim;

in the food a complex jumble of flavor and aroma—

all spice and more in Northern Thailand.


At the golden triangle convergence:

tripoint of three countries, confluence of two rivers;

to the northwest red poppies of Myanmar

obscure budding signs of freedom.


All the best,

Warren J. Devalier
