In…Mother’s Nature, she keeps me

she keeps me 2

 

In Mother’s Nature…

She keeps me gentle

She keeps me sapient

She keeps me legitimate

She keeps me with timeless testsshe keeps me 3

She keeps me with flesh

She keeps me with dignity

She keeps me shady

She keeps me with chemistry

She keeps me with fragile, breakable reverie

She keeps me

She keeps me

she keeps me 4

…a most indulgent mother, has placed her best gifts out in the open, like air, water and the earth itself; vain and unprofitable things she has hidden away in remote places.

Country Affirmations

With moments such like a desolate snowflake, hanging from the sky.

I walk my daily assertions and provoke, why?

The cold and the lucidity encapulates me.

I cannot always get there from here.

Yet, I am still open wide and apathetically, naturally, translucent to what nature offers me.

Traveling left of false roads…lifting a heavy foot, I am not too old.

Too old to bear the fruit of red berry, solo on downtrodden branch.

Further, into unmarked mystery, for bleak seconds, I find my second chance.

Country affirmations leave a stone heart vivid with darkened greens and snow-blind white.

Country proclamations steal my sideways glance.

Not all that is meant to be…

Not all is within sight.

If Only

Happiness– which is total and complete satisfaction with yourself. This means you realize that nothing and nobody else can make you happy. Happiness is something you get from yourself. If you’re completely satisfied with yourself, nobody can take it away from you. ##the RZA

Beauty is in the Technique

Too lazy to be ambitious, I let the world take care of itself. Ten days’ worth of rice in my bag; a bundle of twigs by the fireplace. Why chatter about delusion and enlightenment? Listening to the night rain on my roof, I sit comfortably, with both legs stretched out! -Ryokan
