Equality — humans struggle with it.

Equality — humans struggle with it.

Queerly we prefer vertical ranks and

Underlining achievements.

All of the time we are

Looking for praise.

Into Self more than others.

This could be our demise,

Yet — many refuse to notice.

Opinions on the Internet

I don’t want to hear your opinion,

please just let it be.

Your opinion is wrong,

plus boring and long,

Now everyone listen to me.

I’m ready to move on.

I’m ready to move on.

Bickering sickening everything and everyone.

Hush. 

Can you hear the calm?

Smiling releasing dopamine and serotonin.

Breathe. 

I am everything and everyone. 

Oxygen, carbon, nitrogen and hydrogen. 

One.

Why don’t some believe?

Religion, superstition, denigration, and greed.

Done.

Incense

Patchouli smoke billows into the sky

Like a day is to a life

At times it floats upward calmly

Other times it frantically fights

Regardless, in the end,

It returns to basic elements

Just as you and I will too

dark green and light green

dark green and light green

leaves change in sunlight

the wind dances across them

You and I and Stars

You and I and stars
Hurling through vast unknowns
Anyone who thinks they know
does not
You and I and stars
Made of the same elements
Anyone who disagrees
should not
You and I and stars
one

black buildings and trees

black buildings and trees
attempting to hide
orange skies reveal them

Beautiful Silence

Beautiful silence so loud I can feel it.

Tears begin to fill my eyes,

because the happiness is overwhelming.

Due to the day to day one tends to forget,

and the forgetting leads to withering.

But at least you can buy things.

Things are nice.

Nice is okay.

Bathing in silence is true happiness.

the sun carefully falls

the sun carefully falls

a cloud floats by

crickets alert each other
