Fraud or Dare

When your mind wants one truth

But all facts show another,

Will you see what is there

Or mold sooth as you’d rather?

When you seek to believe

What you wish

Not what’s real,

Will you claim truth a fraud

Or urge gyp

Be revealed?

World Genius

There’s a brilliance

To the cosmos

That shines brighter than

All stars.

An artistry

To nature’s glory

That far exceeds anything

I can actually

Understand.

In spite of crowded quarters

There evidently is a draw

To hanging

One’s own nest

In environs of unquestioned

Popularity.

Life in a Window

The stories told

In windows.

The sound of small feet

Represented

In a princess nightgown

Drying

Sheltered

By other clothing

Under a small awning

Behind

Weathered bars

Bracketed by

An antenna

And a plant.

Coincidence of Fate

You are no accident.

This time.

This place.

Your presence is

If not pre-ordained

Then an absolute responsibility,

Manifesting

With each moment

Every action

Of said and unsaid,

In a remarkable

Synchronicity

For opportunity

And fate.

Flavorful Blessing

May the taste of life’s adventures

Be as varied

And as flavorful

As its promises,

And may sweet embellishments

Prove to be

A lot more than

Simply icing.

Sorrow and Hope

Red AmitaiAsif

Like pebbles on the beach

Like grains of sand

Like leaves upon the trees

Like flowers in a meadow

May we never be alone

In sorrow

And in hope.

May we find solace

In each other

And may compassion

Weave heart strands together

So we remember

How alike we are

Each one its own true flower

Each one part of the whole

In sorrow

And in hope.
