Drops of Water on Rocks

Google.com


drops of water
hit the surface
of a rock,
the weight may
only do slight
scratches
in the beginning,
you won't see
any differences
in the stone,
but if you let
drops of water
fall on the rock
consistently,
continuously,
...
for
days,
weeks,
months,
years,
decades,
centuries,
...
after a blue moon,
you shall see
the holes on
rocks,
which implies:
persistence
does make
a huge
difference
after
a long
time.
because
the waterfall
will eventually
do a
breakthrough,
this can be
used as a
metaphor-
hardwork
pays off.

Winter Escape

Happy Thanksgiving!



The air goes timid,
Lotus pond turns tarnish and dry,
Nothing fishy speaks of liquid fun,
Creeks or streams become flat and shy,
The field stops breathing
upon silver fogs and shivering wind.
It's time to pause,
and think of spring or summer time,
with jackets handy,
ready to ski or pack your peanut butter sandwiches,
remember instant coffee, and mash mellow cups..
Celebrating thanksgiving at your choice hotel
or favorite city, smile a lot...
nothing hurts when writing suddenly fails,
and you simply wish to spend some cash on recalling the past.

The Game of Game!

when all the cards are in
and after all the chips are considered,
The arguments argued,
The dirt dug out,
I wonder
if people will remember
what you're achieved,
and conclude
that you have played
a balanced fair game
of game
on love,
or fame?

Our Smoke Has Gone Four Ways By Lance Henson


Our smoke has gone four ways,
It calls for us
~
My friends smile with tears
We may never meet again.
~
Eagle of fire whose
wings are scented cedar.
~
Moon of forever who
guards the sacred seed.
~
Keep us strong
to meet the
coming days.
