Photo quote -

Without self-expression life lacks spontaneity and joy.
Without service to others, it lacks meaning and purpose. ~ Laurence G. Boldt

the world, time & oblivion

watching the world 

pass by, and yet not 
only this stream of time, 
and the rest 
falling into a hazy oblivion

Thursday, May 22, 2014


summer deepens 

saddened by the news of yet 

another . . .

Death - still, the worst of all news to hear: 

Time, the bird; Time, the river 

you said we are birds of the same feather?

we are the feathers of the same bird, 

flying without a pause

Time, the bird

and we, each a feather 

to fall

in its time - a soft sigh, leaving silently 

or may be a violent sigh 

upon the violent stream that 

time may turn ~ 

Time, the river

this voice

this voice
as if lost and found
the song sings
yet again

….smearing the sky
strange bird calls -
what makes you cry so wild,
strange bird, what makes you cry
when you may sing as sweet?

the waves -

from the vacation ~

the waves 
rising, falling, rising . . .
we return

Pasternak -I

“I don't like people who have never fallen or stumbled. Their virtue is lifeless and of little value. Life hasn't revealed its beauty to them.” ― Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago
