The delicate nature of Being

It's a rainy day........



stay inside

& listen to music from our youth

& take apart a bouquet of flowers

& hang them out to dry

& record their intricate beauty in our camera

& live as if we are already these 'accomplished' people we long to be

& not just nobody sitting around filling up spaces in time

& then think what a ridiculous thought that is

& continue on with the day, stringing words together simply to delight our own selves

Like this:

Organs of sense

confess the scattered

light of death

what is false pretense

massed together with heart & soul?

only the fervor of fight & love

so press onward everlasting corruption

discern all things by their roots

lop off that which twitches its toes
& slaughter doubtless minglings

for among the living trunk

of the bereft nature
of the sudden'ness of Life

wishes are granted to those who are You
