Owning Time

Owning time

Beaten body
Meds shored
Mind on edge
Of wake/sleep mode
I hung on doggedly

Game of scrabble
Playful squabbles
Kept mind honed
Body ache forgotten
And then I won!

Pleased smile
Tripping on lips
I shut my twinkling
Eyes opting for more
Than forty winks

Rested body at dawn
Is less than more sore
Mind is tack sharp
And in the now-this
Moment, I wholly own~

Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo~
~*~*~*
Today
Alert mind
Wearing serenity
Was calmly dealing
With pain wracked
Body, weary
When I beheld
Thy divine visage
And let myself fully
Flow into thy
Beckoning
Embrace
And aches
Dissipated
In a hurried
Retrace~

Secure

Keep me tied
Never abandoning
In disorienting bereft moments
That wound, unraveling spirit

Allow me to stay bound
To your divine form
Exuding peace
Healing warmth

Secure, allow me to bask
In your grace, mind lucid,
Reverence replete
Complete~

Filo

Filo

Soft etchings
X-ray inflexions
Holograms

Filo layer
Watermarks
On soul transitory

Potter fires kiln
Strengthening
Virgin body

Ancient memories
Eke reactions
Involuntary

Déjà vu moments
Instant repels
Inexplicably

Portal to portal soul
Bird migratory flees
“Ashen” body disintegrated~

*filo – as in pastry dough

Confetti

KGbergenpic

Awake at predawn
Emerging from cozy
Cocoon of eiderdown
Feet touch ground~

Night is on “quit” mode
Ready to origami blanket
Front, backyards quicken
With hushed wisps of chatter~

Beginning new “ewe” day
With holy chants on spirit softly
Cascading, I sprinkle idea confetti
In fecund earth of my rested mind

As they gain momentum, sprout
I take up brushes of varied girths
Daub them in nuances and dripping
Pastels of emotional swirls, pearls

With firm hand, I tint each “petal”
Form crocodiles as nursery schools
Ready with cherubic morning faces
To bask in rays of aficionados’ glow

So many gorgeous blossoms, butterflies
Flutter eyelashes, surroundings entice
And then these magnificent unsung coquettes
With brief life spans in obscurity, perish~
