From The Heart

FROM THE HEART

Two hearts we have
One full to overflowing
The other halfblown, aching
For the fulfilment of the other half

The first is but a simple wavelet
Rippling on throughout the Allthereis
This other: a rowboat … adrift, forlorn
Detached from its moorings, lost at sea

Drunk in charge, a bewildered admiral
Sways this way and that with the wind
Locked into a half nelson, half-blinded
Expected to fabricate the material for

A memoir to commit to fading paper
And an epitaph to carve in granite
Our eyes but a neutral recorder
Of course not even our own

Stalemate

STALEMATE

We hang suspended
Awaiting one another
To stop pretending

That’s Irony, Right?

Perfect Make Out Music

Youth

YOUTH

We advanced boldly
And splattered love everywhere
What a mess we made

Holy Mycelia, Batman

HOLY MYCELIA, BATMAN

Religions are rather like mushrooms
They spring up all over the place

Some can provide illumination
Others can provide nourishment

Some can be poisonous, even deadly
Best to take care, and choose wisely

These Words

THESE WORDS

Whoever
Wrote down

These words

You are here
Interpreting

These words

May have, have they not
Written

These words

In hopes of
A deeper understanding of

These words

The Four Yugas

THE FOUR YUGAS

There once was, or is said
(Within that strict restriction
Born by some imagined time)
A Krita Yuga, a Golden Age

But time in time moved on
Having nowhere else to go
Puppets demanding rituals
So birthed the Treta Yuga

Empty rituals have their day
Then lose direction, pass on
Smothered in moss and ivy
Dvapara Yuga, Age of Doubt

Doubt, a castle built on sand
Spews conflict and confusion
Good job we now have words
Record the current Kali Yuga

Stop … step outside of time

Abandon ancient scriptures
Except the ones that declare
There’s but a single moment
And here it is once again …

The Polymath

THE POLYMATH

Lesson by lesson
Lessons that do not lessen
But instead enhance

The one in the all
All one in togetherness
Alone together

Steep The Path

STEEP THE PATH

Minds full of judges
Leading us astray … Let us
Not judge even them

Not So Smart Phones

NOT SO SMART PHONES

A lack of envir-
onmental awareness can
be life threatening

Absorption in technology and a lack of environmental awareness is becoming so chronic that traffic accidents due to driver distraction have doubled in recent times. Fights are being started as people on smartphones get in each other’s way.

- No so smart.
