And Besides

AND BESIDES

I don’t think
Going for a walk
Is a good idea
It’s quite cold

And besides
It’s getting late
And we don’t want
To be out in the dark

It is in vain
You display to me
Your broken heart

For I am unable
To repair it, dear one
And besides
I have one of my own

The Sunlit Path: Senryu

THE SUNLIT PATH

She follows her heart
Save in the certain knowledge
That it is not hers

So What

SO WHAT

Go to hell? No probs
Been there already
Came back intact
A few hot baths
A few clockticktocks
And good as new

As the bell rings
For the next round
And round and round
And round we go
Waving, smiling
See you there

Waving back

Smiling back

Star Of Bethlehem: Four By Six

STAR OF BETHLEHEM

Follow only your heart
Never mind quantity
Quality is what counts
And you have it in spades

The True Destination

THE TRUE DESTINATION

Nowhere to go
No need to go anywhere
Sit where you are
Simply follow your heart

Caring

CARING

The heart and hand
Lead the way
The mind and tongue
Are often elsewhere

Listen

LISTEN

Advice from the heart
In all our interactions
We should be kinder

Free As A Bird

FREE AS A BIRD

Woke up this morning
Nothing to live or die for
I sang my heart out

Appreciated (30d)

APPRECIATED

Kindly words
Never come amiss
Both hearts are
Uplifted
Let us ensure they never
Go out of fashion

Fearspawn

FEARSPAWN

Many people believe
(Having been taught so)
That love and hatred are opposites

But in my experience this is not correct
The true opposite of love is fear

Fear is the ground
From which hatred grows

Love opens us up
Fear closes us down

We no longer see
So we imagine

And hate what
We think we see

To overcome our hatred
We must first overcome our fear
Of our fellows and of ourselves
