Appointed Time

All of Nature’s souls

Know their appointed time to

Blossom for their world.

Quote: “Be like water…”

​Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”

— Bruce Lee

Walk of Peace

I walk my path freely

Fear of lies quenched beneath me

Seen through heart of tone

Book Closed

Reading first three chapters
Agony befriends me
Insipidty prances as crime.
That is not all
To seize just in time,
Terms all finally mine!
Independence redeemed
‘pon shutting this book,
Closure reached
There was never a breach
Meaning Darkness enjoyed all the fun…
+++
It’s time now, then, to simply let in the Sun.
