Onlooker: Quatrain

ONLOOKER

Just another snapshot
Just another day
Breath carries on
Regardless

Darkness: Shadorma

DARKNESS

Whenever
Eclipse is total
I retreat
To the sky
Close all the doors and windows
And watch the clouds

Stone Me!

STONE ME!

Life arises/arrives
In so so many forms
And all inter-related

Best observe, interact
Without attachment
For it is after all as it is

Observations

OBSERVATIONS

No me to be right
Likewise no me to be wrong
What we encounter
Is what we see it to be
The observer no less so

~~~~~~~~~~~

“The world is an illusion; it has no real existence. And this is what is meant by ‘imagination’ (khayāl). For you just imagine that it (i.e. the world) is an autonomous reality quite different from and independent of the Absolute Reality, while in truth it is nothing of the sort. Know that you yourself are an imagination. And everything that you perceive and say to yourself, ‘this is not me’ is also an imagination. So that the whole world of existence is imagination within imagination.”

– Ibn Arabi.

Wayfaring

WAYFARING

Accumulate little
Give much
Speak little
Observe much

An Odd Coincidence

AN ODD COINCIDENCE

R E P starts both
Republican and reptile
Just saying that’s all
We don’t create destiny
Just observe its unfolding

The body? Clothing.
Decay? Inevitable.
Task? Observation.

One Tongue Flapping

ONE TONGUE FLAPPING

Mirror shattering
All images dissolving
Into a word soup
