Rain Today

(back here after 2 years!)

I’m not angry at the rain
gentle creature
pitter patter
on my rooftop window

Rain, oh rain
Giver of life
Aquatic nourishment
for flora and fauna alike

Rain streaming down
outside my window
gentle creature
one of the thousand miracles of earth

Reminds me of the fortune
that is my shelter
here in my homestead
I’m content to watch the rain come down

An ode to today

I’m tired of playing these politics games
where we can’t be honest and we need to hide
our true intentions because we’re not right
alongside the norm, inside the box
mental energy
exerted in this way
drains my spirit
fuels my anxiety
crushes my productivity
why can’t they see that
they also do this
to themselves
I wish we could focus
just a little higher than this
I don’t want to outwit you
I want to out perform you

Early Enough

LA morning

 

somehow the morning sets me free
If I can just wake
early enough
close to the dawn
I will be renewed
the trench I have sunk myself
deep into
the previous day
will no longer exist
there is hope within the morning
early enough, and I can do something
for myself
before devoting the day
to preoccupations of others
early enough, and I can forget
the pains I went to sleep with
the ways I tried to numb them
how I lost myself between the lines
you can only rise up
in the morning
if it’s early enough
you have not missed anything
you can be ready to face the world
on your own terms

 

 

 

some info

As a rule, all my posts have been taken from a collection I’ve been building from May of last year. I am thinking about adding some spontaneous stuff to the blog, but it comforts me that I can take from the library when I’d like to update. That being said, certain notions expressed in my works are outdated (not current, or in this moment) and should be read as such. I’ll make sure to categorize spontaneous posts under “now” so that may serve as a record.

First Example:

NOW
I have internet at home
it came unexpectedly
I really wanted to run and jump for joy
and scream “yippee!”

I had nothing really to do on the internet
but I quickly searched for something of meaning
It’s a good thing I have this blog
because facebook and imgur have gotten boring\

seriously

I hope the internet at home thing
lasts more
than just this night
