One-Liner Wednesday — Just Because

Just because smart guys tell you they will be able to dump you into a computer some day, given enough funding, does not mean they will ever, ever be able to do that.

Rock

Fossils and some other things
Rest inside this rock.
The past to my own present brings
Suggestive hints to shock.

I am used to seeing such
Along this Green Bay shore.
What was before stands out to touch
My mind through this rock’s door.

Gratitude — Sun Salutation

Even seagulls understand,
Salute the brightening Sun.
They pause with eyes that watch it rise,
Give praise, for day’s begun.

Monotherapy

The pills I pop are not enough
To pop me out of here.
Addictions though prefer the pop
And that is what I fear.


Text: “Monotherapy” is a new word for me and I am not on any pills. I am linking this to dVerse Open Link Night. Toni is hosting.

One-Liner Wednesday — Levitation

To rise we forgive to lose what holds us down.

Blooms Against the Darkness

Light may leave the background dark.
Blooms look brighter where
The background makes a blacker mark
So colors blossom there.

Blue and Yellow Flowers

Unrealized Transformation

I have never seen an owl, but I have seen pictures. I don’t remember if they ever appeared in my dreams. There they could come in many forms representing, so I’ve heard, good luck or bad or death or wisdom perhaps with the sprinkling of Merlin’s understanding of reality. Unfortunately, like most people, the scientific nonsense I believe in, without being aware of it, would still keep me from taking such dreams seriously. It’s really too bad. Maybe the owl has brought me bad luck through the back door? Maybe, because I refuse to take that deep, transforming breath and become as wise as those owls are said to be, I deserve all my current blindness? Maybe this, too, will all turn out well in the end?

OWL WISE AND BOLD
WINTER VIEW IS CLEAR BUT COLD
PEACEFUL FALLING SNOW
