fine weather 
in its stillness, the river
stops its flow, then turns

departed souls ~
sifting through the void
spots of sunlight

His Highness Uthradom Thirunal Marthandavarma who passed away today....also reminding of the others who have left us....

Atisha - I

The greatest achievement is selflessness. The greatest worth is self-mastery. The greatest quality is seeking to serve others. The greatest action is not conforming with the world's ways. The greatest magic is transmuting the passions. The greatest generosity is non-attachment. The greatest goodness is a peaceful mind. The greatest patience is humility. The greatest effort is not concerned with results. The greatest meditation is a mind that lets go. The greatest wisdom is seeing through appearances.

John Milton - I

“A mind not to be changed by place or time.
The mind is its own place, and in itself
Can make a heav'n of hell, a hell of heav'n.” 
~ John Milton 

Paradise Lost or Paradise Regained, Belated Birthday Greetings, John Milton.

Wading, wading

wading into the dark,
wild swans –rippling

wading into the unknown
wild swans – the eternal
waters reflecting

sudden surge

after all these years 
of tedium, a sudden surge of spirit ~
watching a sunbird 
dart crisscross 
across the hedgerow

wind chill

wind chill ~
ah! the pleasure of
walking the earth
through the seasons
