Mexican Yellow on a Mexican Bird of Paradice   Leave a comment

Many butterfly images
before one good one.

Another butterfly
flies by, I focus
on a yellow one.

Snap, and Snap again,
trying to be invisible
in the bright sunlight.

A cloud moves by,
shooting manually,
I change settings.

Why shoot manual?
Prefer working with
options, having choices.

The sun comes back out
only to give way
to more clouds.

Wind gusts 
move the flowers
as butterflies move on —

it is the monsoon season,
distant thunder

is a reminder.

“I have one major rule: Everybody is right. More specifically,
everybody — including me — has some important pieces of truth,
and all of those pieces need to be honored, cherished,
and included in a more gracious, spacious,
and compassionate embrace.”

― Ken Wilber

THE NO-NOS

Muscles without strength,
friendship without trust,
opinion without risk,
change without aesthetics,
age without values,
food without nourishment,
power without fairness,
facts without rigor,
degrees without erudition,
militarism without fortitude,
progress without civilization,
complication without depth,
fluency without content,
and, most of all, religion without tolerance.

— Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Engrossing as a black hole
or your TV screen. I send out
no powers: I accept all
energies, all joys and juices . . .

Wonder — is not precisely Knowing
And not precisely Knowing not — 
A beautiful but bleak condition
He has not lived who has not felt —
