Family never seemed right

The story of my life in three lines. Good thing it’s been such an easy, uncomplicated life or it would have taken a lot more room to explain it.

Just because it’s brief (the senryu, not the lifetime 😉 ) doesn’t mean it hasn’t been complicated. Or maybe that’s just the way I looked at it. Overthinking.
I wouldn’t argue with that for a moment. Brevity isn’t an easy thing to achieve-I’ve been trying for years. Maybe I was over simplifying.

Shoulder to shoulder! 🙂
I can feel the Monk living within your spirit and physical form. In my mind, I am not as certain about the self that lives this life inside of me. Will need to ponder further. 🙂
Do send me a bulletin if you uncover anything you deem worth sharing. 🙂
Is it fair to say I feel the Writer was born within me and lives somewhere now within my spirit. What exactly that means, I am not certain how to explain. It is a driving force I cannot ignore.
Ponder on, ponder on. 🙂
