Chagrin

CHAGRIN

What sorrow
What loss, what pain
What vain regret

What resolve
To refrain
From repetition

Stages Of Love In Tanka Form

STAGES OF LOVE IN TANKA FORM

Love looked for outside
Love looked for inside oneself
Love finds compassion
Love sent from in to outside
Love dissolves side and sender

Again And Again

AGAIN AND AGAIN

Each moment is a learning
If we are able to take heed
Thus we spark one another
Into some new fresh blazing

Teaching, Learning And Intuition

TEACHING, LEARNING AND INTUITION

You asked me last Thursday, or as I recall it
To “Please e-mail me with a gentle reminder”

Yet, for reasons not really worth recounting
It has taken me a couple of days to do this

And this has allowed me to pad out my e-mail
With a couple of videos I think will interest you

Plus an article on the castration of education
So clearly the delay was in some way important

Unrequited

UNREQUITED

That word
Unrequited

Oceans
Deserts

Encompassing

That pain

Those yearnings

Those learnings

Quests

QUESTS

We look for love
Meanwhile love
Is looking
So patiently
For us

The Sleeveless Heart

THE SLEEVELESS HEART

Finding myself in Love I do my best
To embody the love I feel for them
In each of my words and actions

They may get it, but sometimes not
This probably has as much to do
With them as it has to do with me

If their response disappoints me
Then it wasn’t in actual fact love
But just a lesson I’ve yet to learn

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

HE LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME NOT

Any fool can lust
Love is that which still remains
After orgasm

Still A Lot To Learn

STILL A LOT TO LEARN

After years in its jails
I suggest that education
Be no longer obligatory

(Thinking through why
A refusal of compliance
Invites legal penalties

Raises some less than
Altogether comfortable
Questions, by the way)

There’d still be schools
But children expected
Not to go unless they

Found it worthwhile
Useful, even – God
Forbid – enjoyable

And teachers’ salaries
Based on attendance
True pupil power at last

One leg will not stand
Understanding not enough
Seek experience
