Memory Lane

MEMORY LANE

I quite like
revisiting
ancient haunts;

lightly caressing
the memories evoked.

I learnt long ago
the foolishness
of regret,

of expectation
or disappointment.

The Wrong Approach

THE WRONG APPROACH

The world my oyster
And I the hopeful diver
With a plastic knife

Invisible Vampires (A Four By Six)

INVISIBLE VAMPIRES

They hover all round us
Tell me you don’t feel them
Be trusting, be open
But be nobody’s fool

Playing The Fool

PLAYING THE FOOL

Attraction
Then attachment
Even knowing better now
I remember it well

A Gift Of Laughter

A GIFT OF LAUGHTER

Kate and Sydney Pye
Amused us by becoming
Vegetarians

“They Are, Therefore …”

Trump
…..
…..
“One sees them everywhere – businessmen hoisting themselves up on tiptoe, struggling desperately to succeed. They are overflowing with anxieties so there is no longer even any room for love of their fellow beings. They are, therefore, themselves unloved and regarded as being no longer human.”

…..– Chuang Tzu (c. 369 BC –  c. 286 BC)

Expectations

EXPECTATIONS

Two children were each given an acorn to plant.

The first was interested, pleased, impressed, deeply moved as it gradually grew into an oak tree, a transformation she could never have anticipated, scarcely have believed possible.

The other was bitterly disappointed.

She had wanted a beech tree.

Science

SCIENCE

That thirst
To understand
The how
Never mind
The why

Exit

EXIT

The weakened ego
Exhausted by eternal strife
Bows, gives up the ghost

At realising
It’s always your assumptions
That lead you astray

Hidden Cost

HIDDEN COST

To seek for fame a bridge too far
To hide from view beneath a mask
Subject of yarn after yarn bizarre
Who needs to take on such a task?
