After a grumpy, blocked, not-liking-my-new-boring-work attack (editors attack! ahh!). I turned to the joy of finding an older poetry book lost at friends place (gathering kids drawing and such). And so re-inspired, I bring you a new-old poem from it called, "soul". What I remember most is the peace I felt as I wrote this. As if the spirits of Basho, Ryokan and Du Fu and their muse were smiling at me somewhere in a forrest glade. For it is a poetry more akin to the zen art of buddhist quietude and wisdom, a place ever respectful, powerful in brevity grace and it's clear poetic dissemination, where life moments and parataxis fly..
