Nature’s Moral Stories III


Grasses felt real;

Grasses were not supposed to feel.

Perhaps ‘Keep of the grass-’ not English enough.

Understable: Not all can read–

Feet can’t read.

Oak leaf in spring,

Oak leaf in autumn—

Are two different things:

One glows from freshness,

While one stuns in gold and being lifeless.

Pines defy coldness;

Pines defy years—

How could fine lines

Be so bothering?

To many, mirror is the scariest thing.

Fields are the arduous labor of men:

Fields to plow to feed themselves:

In sweat and tears to bring forth something,

Harvest to every table—

Is a noble thing.

Aldebaran speaks being insignificant to a larger whole—let it be known.

The Passage of Time


Seasons come and go;
And so are woes—is that why
People hoard them so?

Seasons come and go:
Nature speaks hi or hello,
Night, bye, shalom—try.

Seasons come and go:
People see, and people feel;
To choose to unknow–

It’s surreal.
