(g) OctaTimbre / Feeding Interests (10.21)

Feeding Interests
(OctaTimbre in syllables)

Sometimes when trading books – you get
Lucky and get something that is
A keeper, maybe not for you
But for someone else – at the train
Station’s You Trade Em book box
A treasure …buried deep under
Some religious ‘tracts’ was a book
About a sunken ship namely
The Titanic that I know will
Entertain Son of Son for hours!

Love 8
Panning for Gold?

The patter
Of my heart – is it
Close in dreams
Or far like
Neverland’s location – come
Seek, and please find me…

(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
a
peaceful island

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

to be found
by
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

BE35: Retro?

Memory can be a handy tool to learn many lessons.
To overcome the challenges of doubt fed to us by
others or ourselves. Some things we simply cannot
control, we can control our own choices and how we
process the treasure that each new day brings.

look back at the past,
glean the harvest of ‘good’ to
share with the future

Good Fortune

Though we all suffer life’s challenges,
it is equally true that almost all of us
are more fortunate than others in some way.

BE22: A United Confluence (*a reverse Shadorma Summation)

A union
Part of reunion
Holding dear
Those we love
Sharing their space; witness, face
Their warm brilliant smiles

As time continues to move forward sharing the same space
as those we love becomes more challenging with distance.
So treasure that union, that reunion when you all can get
together especially when the only reason is for ‘love’.

Union

The air that covers our wonderful planet links all beings
In the cycle of breathing in and breathing out.

for each other

into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.
