20 October



we dig deep holes in gravel

put up fences

and build our walls up brick by brick

it's a balancing act they tell us

as if we could have noticed everything
as if we could have prepared for tentacles
that climbed our fortresses
and left our eyes and mouths
staring into vacancy

in the end we are nothing 
time cheats us all
and trashes everything

  9. I love this:

    "as if we could have noticed everything
    as if we could have prepared for tentacles
    that climbed our fortresses
    and left our eyes and mouths
    staring into vacancy"

    It puts me in mind of the media and how it winds around our lives and sucks the sanity from our heads. But that's just my perception. :) So magnificent. I truly enjoyed reading this.

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
