8 September






some people used only linear dimensions



 avenues laid straight in front of them

invariable, unbent, unswerving


my answers seem to be at the center 

of a magic ball some times

am I the only one to be intrigued by  that ringing bell

and then I remember

there are stains on all of us

we all pay a price for being alive

    Life is such that there are aspects of life that need 'cleaning up'. One is faced with risks all the time just to solve them. Nicely!

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
