There are times

I’m not a female,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t male

I’m not a black,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a white

I’m not immortal,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t mortal

I’m not a doubter,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a believer

I’m not a conservative,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a liberal

I’m not a saint,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t sinful

I’m not ignorant,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t learned

I’m not implicit
But there are times
I wish I weren’t explicit

I’m not an Islamic,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a Christian

I’m not an animal,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a human

I’m not in
But there are times
I wish I weren’t out

I’m not lonely
But there are times
I wish I weren’t the opposite

I’m not you
But there are times
I wish I weren’t me

… Still, there are times
I am the opposite
Of the opposite of me

My personality is who I am.
My attitude depends on who you are.

Sandpipers 

Sandland where the salt water kills the sweet potatoes.
Homes for sandpipers-the script of their feet is on the sea shingles —
they write in the morning,
it is gone at noon-they write at noon,
it is gone at night.
Pity the land, the sea,
the ten mile flats,
pity anything but the sandpiper’s wire legs and feet.
— Carl Sandburg

Fostering the Creation of An Illusion   Leave a comment

Rose Lake August 2012Rose Canyon Lake In The Santa Catalina Mountains — Image by kenne

Hiking, watching each step
yet it is possible to look at
various distances engaging
my attention on many points
occurring in space around me.

Living in time passing,
it is easy to contemplate
past times with the present
state to retain its peace —

having combined the moment
with the past, thus fostering
the creation of an illusion
as if some future place and time.

    It seems, as one becomes older,
That the past has another pattern,
and ceases to be a mere sequence—
Or even development: the latter a partial fallacy
Encouraged by superficial notions of evolution,
Which becomes, in the popular mind,
a means of disowning the past.

— T. S. Eliot

“Just living is not enough,” said the butterfly,

“one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.” 

— Hans Christian Andersen
