    Splendid Spectrals

    Quietly settled,
    Gaze straight ahead listening
    To their quaint whispers.
    Wind blowing, branches swaying
    As they speak to me softly.

    I admire your economy and your resistance to extending this just for the sake of doing so.

    This is a mystic expression and indeed they transport me to a poetic world of Robert Frost, for there Frost see things we can not see, the beauty of something we can not see ordinarily.

    “Those who seek to satisfy the mind of man by hampering it with ceremonies and music and affecting charity and devotion have lost their original nature””

    “If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation.

    Great tanka!
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...
