Disappearing lines
transcending tangible light
nobody is home.

Beware sunsets’ lure—
shadows at their longest warn,
darkness soon follows.

In poetry, question on 20160819 at 23:57

street light had intentions.
maple leaves had impact.
sidewalk, an innocent canvas.
shadows reflect consequence.
which belies truth?

A miracle is / but proper science experienced / by one who believes / but does not understand. 

The question is, to copy or be copied?

Green, is grass, until it is brown.

A single chain is more worthy than many a link.

To the mouth, food is / to the ears, what poetry is.

The peaceful road is a lonesome road, and the lonesome road is a peaceful road. 


In the desert, a drought is, until the first drop of rain.

《the way》
dear little one,
the world is yours.
the world was yours
even before you belonged
to it.
it was, is, and will be
your redemption as often
as it will be your nemesis.
do not be afraid, for fear
will not carry your burdens
nor will it shelter you
from the elements.
have hope as much as will
allow triumph
over the ills of present,
but none so much that
you deceive yourself
of the realities of the future
or the consequences of the past.
days of sorrow will weave
a tight knit alongside joy,
neither with warning
nor with limitation.
you shall persist because
you know of nothing else,
not only because you will it.
for as a mortal, possibility
is as finite only as is time.
what tomorrow will bring you,
yesterday has already taken
away, with a fluidity that
surprises with subtlety.
you will love and hurt,
feel pain and transfer pain.
you will always forgive
because the alternative
is no alternative.
fairness and justice
will oft be at odds
with one another and for you.
you will not always deserve
your destiny, but you will
decide not to deny it.
for tonight, the sun sets low,
but tomorrow, high,
high shall the sun rise up.
oh, little one, until tomorrow,
good night.

As if in rival, existential exposition, I am
respected by kindred souls and
ridiculed by hindering souls.

《standing》
misunderstood, are we
when understanding, we
are not.

Different realities are a result of different perspectives.

True balance needs imbalance to maintain balance.

To breathe fresh air, one must leave the fire.
