Unicycling

UNICYCLING

The Universe seems
In one way hard to endure
While in another
It seems we creators make
It up as we go along

Bête Noire

BÊTE NOIRE
…………………………………………………………………………This one’s for dear Margaret W
An unpleasantness
Unwarranted to my mind
Drains another glass
And chitchats with abandon
While beneath the masque … Her pain

Tao Circus Tanka

TAO CIRCUS TANKA

Dropping space and time
Releasing sufficiently
We accept the All
These battles of Black v White
But an ongoing sideshow

Twain

TWAIN

There is a thing, Love
Which words may only hint at
There is a word, love
Used to describe desire
And never the twain shall meet

O To Be As Water

Crashing
…..
…..
O TO BE AS WATER

Look see the wave crash
Listen to the mighty roar
Watch the droplets fly
Smashed to smithereens and yet
The ocean repairs itself

Equanimity

EQUANIMITY

I Heart all Comments
Except the other kind … which
I simply Delete
One day I’ll stop doing this
Then I shall have made progress

Now, Now, Alice

NOW, NOW, ALICE

Time’s a paradox
Absolutely relative
What future? What past?

Tick Tock Tock Tick … Pause
And fall down the rabbit hole
Dodgson’s wonderland
Awaiting eternally
That which is already here

First a senryu
In short order, a tanka
And then a second
Along with fifty-nine more
Leaving the Cheshire Cat’s smile

Sarah’s Godfather

SARAH’S GODFATHER

Shivered my timbers
Being addressed as uncle
We are family
Yes, but by Spirit not blood
Where we came from we are one

Mortality

MORTALITY

We still have time then
(Sat here in the waiting room
Till our train pulls in)
To ponder the big questions
Like how long remains and why

Misled

MISLED

History unrolls
As empires follow empires
A depressing sight
The technologies evolve
While the same mistakes recur
