Misinstruction

MISINSTRUCTION

They teach five senses
Sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell
But what of the sixth?
Mind (not distracted by thoughts)
The elephant in the room?

Prejudice

PREJUDICE

This plant is called weed
Is this not the place it starts?
Discrimination

Nature II

NATURE II

Both creatures and plants
From ants to elephants
Ginormous or minute
Beauty abounds

Beauty abounds wherever
Whenever we choose
Once given due attention
– Okay sometimes patience

But always attitude, attitude
Birth, growth, blooming and death
No need of any artificial grooming
Simple appreciation, gratitude

Crepuscule

CREPUSCULE

Silence and small sounds
Nestle like peas in a pod
Sharing is good – Thanks

Billet-doux II

BILLET-DOUX II

Left a little sign
Somewhere where you would find it
A clumsy attempt

Never was too good
At drawing the perfect heart
But the intention …

Honey Trap

HONEY TRAP

Beneath the surface
Shimmering halls of mirrors
Promise amazement!

Curiosity assuaged!
Infinite regress is all
A maze meant to snare

Sea Urchins

SEA URCHINS

Drowning not waving
Or else waving not drowning
Undecided yet

A SAD BLIGHT

A SAD BLIGHT

None so blind as those
Who, given the gift of sight
Cannot, will not see

Dread Affliction

DREAD AFFLICTION

Overthinking
One terrible affliction
Thinking gets enmeshed
Goes blind lost in emotion
Pure intuition cut adrift
Time to let go

Return
Remain
Release
Relax

Sit still as silence
Thirty minutes and reboot
Duly calm readdress the issue
If caterwauling chitcat reinvades
Stop – take ten deep breaths
Ten – one after the other

Give yourself a hug or two
Tap your baton a time or two
For you are conductor here
Call the players to order
And issue your order
Da capo – Da capo

Return
Remain
Release
Relax

And et cetera

Ah, But Then …

AH, BUT THEN …

Ah! Wordless Wednesday.
I’d explain it but … No words!
(I’m stuck in Tuesday.)
