farewell to phil

my search for something
has now come to nothing much
more than basketball

it did not get hot
cold winter long forgotten
today the spring rolls

perverse what it means:
it's "per (through) verse (poetry)"
living poetry!

sun then rain

yesterday sunny
today scattered thunderstorms
the Buddha says same, same

admitting faults wise

admitting faults wise
defending our faults betrays
very unsound mind

flow with the go

Peggy Radcliffe, brush on paper

flash flooding coming
Chuang Tzu says go with flow
practice treading water

the geese of ginsberg

Peggy Radcliffe, brush on paper

geese fly when they fly
and they walk when they walk and
they die when they die
