Each Of Us

EACH OF US

Upon his decease
They found, clearing out his things, this envelope
Addressed “To whom it may concern”

Each of us is a PLP
A Public Leaning Post
A Poor Lonely Person

As a Public Leaning Post
I give each of you help and acceptance
And this is my Love

As a Poor Lonely Person
I ask each of you for help and acceptance
And this is my Humility

Amidst the dark and stormy seas of my pain and passion
I cling to the raft of my heart
And this is my Integrity

Among the dark and silent hills of my inner landscape
I shout “Hello” and listen to my own voice’s dying echoes
And this is my Humanity

There is a time for speech, a time for action
A time for silence and stillness
And this is my Wisdom

And as I strive to honour each moment as it is
And hold these qualities in mind
Perhaps I approach Creativity

Least Said, Soonest Mended

LEAST SAID, SOONEST MENDED

It is wise to avoid arguing
With those whose opinions
Are opposed to one’s own
Or with the utterly stupid

It is especially important
If one is viewing the two
As but one and the same

The Slings And Arrows: Double Shadorma

THE SLINGS AND ARROWS

Give it up
These foolish attempts
To cover
The whole world
With leather so’s to protect
Our sensitive feet

Far better
Since achievable
Watch our step
And wear some
Stout but comfortable shoes
Wherever we go

Not So Smart Then After All.

“Technology itself is a tool that is neither inherently good nor bad, but technology without wisdom is weaponised stupidity.”

Ahoy There! II

AHOY THERE! II

Children have a wisdom
That adults have lost

Adults have a wisdom
Children have yet to attain

May we never sail on blindly
Missing one another by miles

Weavers We (A poem)

WEAVERS

The past casts shadows over the present
Just as the present casts shadows over the future
Everything in the one tapestry is interwoven
The wise weaver will bear this fact in mind
And so avoid the trap of uncaring isolation

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

A Word To The Wise II

A WORD TO THE WISE II

Worry, worry, worry
Kills you in a hurry

So let things be
And you will see
More days

And those days
Will also sweeter be

Dunnow’s Recompense

DUNNOW’S RECOMPENSE

To find strength and comfort in uncertainty
Is the reward for an earnest searching
Beyond the generally agreed upon
And thenceforth universally decreed

Nuptials Ongoing

NUPTIALS ONGOING

She’s always found right
Whereas he’s always found wrong
He’s her perfect match

He’s probably right
Whereas she’s probably wrong
But he keeps the peace

Chiselling at it
Venturing past right and wrong
They’ve found perfect peace
