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

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.

Beckoning

My heart beckons me to come sit down

I make time to do so…

To sit and be with her

Reconciling by silence

To sit down.

And just be.

Unpaved Ways

Dusks turn deeper
Nights of no moon
Traipsing in once again
Out come old scars
Ebullitions tear open
With memories she felt
Concealed dim.
With no leaders to guide
She must do what they won’t
All safety taken in stride
She must now pave a way
To protect without strife
Saving young souls
Of her life.
