A Letter Away: Senryu

A LETTER AWAY

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

Treading Water

TREADING WATER

Busy all day long
Reading, thinking, replying
Inbox remains full

Fading Posters

FADING POSTERS

Seven years fly by
While we, observers, spy
As others one by one disappear
Change – endless change – mere change
Where art thou yesteryear? A hollow laugh?

To not laugh perhaps our sole recompense
To mock the empty mocker and so repost
Salut! and Salut! and Salut! and Salut!
Within time – time as both illusion
And yet at the same time eternal

Dangly Bits And Traps

DANGLY BITS AND TRAPS

Then again
From a Zen
Or Dzogchen
Viewpoint – or Tao
Relax back into Now
Return – Release
Thought destroys Peace
Breeds Illusion
Confusion
All is One
With no one
Real to worry
To fret or hurry
From here to there
Be more than Aware
Ending up being less
And breathless
Breathe in – Breathe out
No mind what it’s all about

A Comment On Comments

A COMMENT ON COMMENTS

This writer is forever very grateful
To all those who spend their time
In suspending their precious time

To those who not only visit, read
But reflect, chew a while and share
Their own thoughts and feelings

For thus we may build community
In flagrant defiance of those others
Who fearfully wish but to destroy it

Wavingnweaving

WAVINGNWEAVING

Waving to weavers
While weaving while wondering
Why weave and why why
While weaving while wandering
Wondering, weaving, waving

~~~~~~~~~~~

This is dedicated to all readers who are also writers, and especially those who may be called – by themselves or by others – poets.

The Wee Hours (20a)

THE WEE HOURS

Three o’clock
Bells ring and all’s well
Up early
Early start
And it’s shoulder to the wheel
Keeping life at bay

Shadorma November

For Kim (14a)

FOR KIM

Your comments
Spread across our posts
You and I
Conversing
I come across them again
And I shed a tear

Shadorma November

Ah, But Then …

AH, BUT THEN …

Ah! Wordless Wednesday.
I’d explain it but … No words!
(I’m stuck in Tuesday.)
