THE RANDOM JOURNAL: STATE OF HEALTH

So yeah. Recent events have made me think about health, both in body and mind. I am glad that I made progress with losing weight. The endless, paranoid thoughts of my mind are another story. But it’s always a work in progress.

The funny thing is that if I was younger, I would have been disappointed if I did not meet my goals. Now I am just content that I went somewhere. I would rather be where I am now than staying where I was previously. I think that is enough for some small measure of peace.

A DROP OF COFFEE

Just like a drop of coffee in a pot

It spends its birth with form outstretched

A yearning, longing to be free

From home. With weight and gravity

It learns and leans and wrenches free

Alive at last, it plummets to its end.

Perfected in a moment’s time

And living in a moment’s time

But in a moment’s time, is gone

DROP OF MIDNIGHT OIL

These wretched, endless study nights

Spent poring over ancient tomes

I try to pour my midnight oil

A drop clings to the bottle lip

Reflected on this golden sphere

That hangs above my little light

Are all the words of ancient kings

Of petty slaves and other things

It falls, this drop, its bond to life

Now severed like a lover’s kiss

Before they say their last goodbyes

It spirals like a bird that lost its wings

It splashes into nothingness

To join its brothers as it burns

To feed the flame, how harsh it churns

Its heat, once calming, now returns

To life, with vigor founded on a life

Of many lives once sacrificed

This flame, it burns for me alone

What light will I feed to atone?

NOT A SPARK

Perhaps the spark between two souls

That share a fleeting glance

Is better seen as ocean waves

Beneath their weighted feet

Infatuation, like a charge

Of rapid, surging sea

Upon a crumbling house of sand

And sooner, later, once

Or twice, a thought of land appears

That drowning in this mad affair

Seems less appealing now

THE TREASURE OF A TALE

Reading is my pleasure, knowledge is my treasure. With reading there is much to gain, a task that I shall do again.

OFF TO THE SUNSET

OFF TO THE SUNSET

Ride on, ride on, and head on home

Desert winds may blind the way

But never wills of stone
