Just Be(cause)


Looking into things

(S)he realised I am Trump!
Time for a rethink …
Did I have a hand in this?
And what do I seek to learn?

Earlier in between showers
(S)he went into the garden
(With not a Maud in sight)*

Ladybird, ladybird fly away home
Your house is on fire, children all gone
Going, going, going, gone

India told me once just be
Give the wheel away
But not to just anyone
Don’t be so laxy#

Open the canister, get to the man inside
Quiet and thoughtful of others
Not the fly God
Nor the shy god

Believe and you will be transformed

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.
