After Hongzhi

All things
Arrive and pass
As thought would have them

Beyond categories
Having never departed
Arrive at your original face

Mind-field
Wide and quiet
Jewels dance on a mountain lake.

Today

Light in Space is dark;
(the Sun shines in the Night sky).
Just stand broadside it.

Iam thinking of the film Fear and lothing in Lasvegas.
Its a frightening sensation, rateling the bones.
My bones. Stuck in this, what to do?


Doing my shoping at the nerby store.
the bonus card. Peaople leaving, the front door.

Always this.

Over
Under

Oversimplifications are many.
Undersimplifications are few.

Don't let's be either!

Which One are you?

Find Shelter for the Homeless

I woke up this morning
before the birds
singing a new old song,
one body moving together
on the savannah in time.

Cooking a new pot of soup
more spacious than this word:
instituitive, that’s:
I-N-S-T-I-T-U-I-T-I-V-E,
appearing before the birds today;

Scientists busily test
its neural connections and
linguists examine its roots,
and how the words collide,
as still-life with soup bowl.

Idols come and idols go,
they can’t sing a song like bird,
or cook an honest bowl of soup
or feel a rock without its’ word.

But, I know the truth that I forgot
three days before water,
closer than the blood in my veins,
hanging on the notes of bird song.

I woke up this morning, and
Before I opened my eyes
a clear voice announced:
It’s time to get up and
be happy.

I laughed out loud
that something so far from view
could be so easy
to discover.

As if it had been there forever,
in the soft moonlight of
the morning
shining on my bed.

Waiting only for me to discover
the beauty of the moon
rising over the oaks,
shining on each leaf
of Just Joey outside.

And, I’ll be late for work,
if I don’t hurry.

Then don't go through the mental fuzz of deciding what is or is not, then you'll see it's all poetry.

Preparing for the future.

This morning thoughts of the next day. Preparations and a will to move. Slowly cooking breakfast.
Lists of things to do. Busy day for some?

A worldseglas under the water.
Down in the deep.

The future is now. The future are inside. The future of thoughts. A reality for most. It can happen at eny moment like a surprise.

I am talking to myself again.

Stitches and a baby screeming. Outside the moder is smothering it.

Long day.

Animals' Haiku

Flying's for the birds;
Galloping behooves a horse;
Humans, the Dharma.
