TRANSIENCE

TRANSIENCE

It comes to us all
Does it ever go away?
We are the changing

POISE

POISE

I’ve no desire
To live through another day
Nor to avoid it

SIMPLY ATTITUDE

SIMPLY ATTITUDE

The optimist says death
Is just as good as life is
The pessimist says death
Is just as bad as life is
Choice is a wondrous gift
To be sure, to be sure

UNSTUCK

UNSTUCK

Time an illusion
Death and birth and death again
Why stick in one place?

EBB AND FLOW

EBB AND FLOW

We’re born into flesh
And all too swiftly dissolve
When the tide recedes

PRECIOUS

PRECIOUS

The past is a ghost
The future a flimsy dream
But tonight is ours
For treasuring each moment
Just as though it were our last

BREATH IV

BREATH IV

The spirit
This moment
Breathes in

And inspires

The spirit
One day
Checks out

And expires

The spirit
Meantime
Quietly watches

Whatever transpires

The spirit
Invites you
To watch it all too

LIFE AND DEATH

LIFE AND DEATH

The birth then the death
The rest of it we make up
As we go along

MATRYOSHKA

MATRYOSHKA

Awaking from dreams
Simply entering new dreams
Like sleepwalkers

TRUCE

TRUCE

Death does not frighten me
And death is unafraid of me
So I guess we are all square
And we can both sleep easy
