A Letter Away: Senryu

A LETTER AWAY

Beware and be alert
Posting: so close to posing
That they can switch rôle

Monkey Mind

MONKEY MIND

Watch the monkey mind
Chattering through the jungle
Swinging thought to thought

One Paradoxical View

ONE PARADOXICAL VIEW

Use me, use me better I pray
Than I know how to use my self

Inside outside of one One
Yes, always yin yang yet
Acknowledging oneness
Still upsize the upside
Downsize the downside
Or at times the other
Always yin yang yet still
Upside downside of one One
Sitting, standing, walking
Differentiating this from that
Am I not still not One? Or not?

Use me, use me better I pray
Than I know how to use my self

Five Things I Wish They Taught In School

FIVE COUNTERINTUITIVE TRAITS OF HIGHLY EVOLVED HUMANS

Beyond Distraction

BEYOND DISTRACTION

There is no real “No”
To the ultimate question
Just “Yes” or “Later”

Open All Hours

OPEN ALL HOURS

Caught without an idea
Alive in livedness
Unexpected panic
Covers her breasts and crotch

Begone Enchanting Hatred

BEGONE ENCHANTING HATRED

Inner exploration
Of whatever hatred
Arises within us
Is the only way out

With terror confronted
(Oz’s humbug wizard)
False images dissolve
Love is reunited

Our Best (26a)

OUR BEST

We struggle
Gamely, unobserved
Not often
Successful
Still there’s always tomorrow
Until there isn’t

Fairy Story (2a)

FAIRY STORY

Let’s beware
Of obsessiveness
A danger
After all
We might become bewitched and
Go on forever

The Hard Way

THE HARD WAY

Tried loving others
But before you knew yourself
No more than a sham
