gnosis

 

Write what you know!

I’m so confused by this advice,

write what? You know?

And don’t just Tell me, somehow Show!

Some things can be taught I surmise,

but experience must suffice —

write what you know.

a la carte

19 March 2013

a la carte

 

I’m quite fussy,

rarely trying anything new.

I’m quite fussy,

and yes, I’ve been called a wussy

but I know that that is not true,

I’m just different from you —

I’m quite fussy.

 

I have my tastes,

I’ll stick with what I know I like.

I have my tastes,

those unknowns could be a mistake,

and who wants to go hungry, right?

you can try anything you might,

I have my tastes.

 

I know what’s good,

don’t try to feed me any lines!

I know what’s good,

I’m not adventurous with food.

my menu’s clear within my mind

I’ll only say this one more time —

I know what’s good!

If you happen to find Nemo

19 March 2013

If you happen to find Nemo

 

close your eyes, listen —

lampost seagull serenade

imagine the waves,

taste the salty tang of air,

bask in the warmth of the sun.

 

dig into the sand,

see the far off horizon,

and let go for once.

these moments are limitless

like the ocean within us.
