13 October



He was born in a burst of thunder

and spent his life

mending the edges

of a sleepy world

with microscopic circular stitches



some called him a prophet

and some a drunkard

they were bound by their own mediocrity

and had no other expectations


it seems to me he trumped them all

  4. smiles...we have a hard time accepting those that are different and call them excentric or worse, but i imagine that he never let that stop him which is why...

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.

Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
