Who is a Tennin?

A Tennin is a heavenly being
That dwells in the Buddhist realm
She is a companion to the enlightened ones
And a guide to those who seek the truth

She is adorned with a feathered robe
That grants her the power of flight
She plays the music of the spheres
And holds a lotus blossom bright

She is a vision of beauty and grace
That inspires awe and wonder
She is a messenger of peace and love
And a source of joy and wonder

She sometimes visits the mortal world
And leaves behind a trace

She is a Tennin, a celestial maid
A fantasy creature of light
She is a dream, a mystery
And a delight.
