Random Thoughts – 3 liners

Treading in cottony soft

Moccasins in mind’s eye

I hug their warmth into me


Pain makes me realize

Preciousness of this life

Detached, I laugh at self


Time inexorably passes

However, in leaving some moments

Gouge names on mind’s tree trunk


I trace such etchings delicately

Appreciating their scars

Realizing their relevance


Pain and pleasure

Grief and joy

Are symbiotic


Daily submerging myself

In early morning chants

I observe life’s nuance


I dance to those tunes

Playing in my head

Channeled from elsewhere
