(g) QKJ 16/ life goes on (1.16) wp

life goes on
(tanka, pi ku, tau ku, pi ku reverse tanka)

plotting the journey;
excavating the mountains
of one’s memories

the trash bin gets filled, the piles
get smaller, like dunes; shifted

looking for
peaceful island

where dreams can come true and
the map
once new, can be lost like treasure

to be found
wisdom seekers

there are reasons to worry
and complain, but few listen

we’ve each had our turn
in turn; been and done, through ‘it’
plotting that journey
