The Rest

There are patches in time and space
Where I am
The rest
Is never fulfilling

Following the horizon
Enriches the meaning
I give
To Life

I touch my imagination
All I can see
Is what I put there
So I can see

So I can play
So I can cry
So I can dance
While I wonder Why

    1. I’ll say it this way:

      Poinant poetry
      does pique’
      And is the peak
      of piquancy

      World’s shortest poem.

      (Better than “Peter Piper Picked a peck of Pickled Peppers. A bit. :-))

      1. Geir, I hope you got that my poem was meant as an acknowledgement of yours. And note that I can only remember ever writing one other – that one too as a result of your blog!

        This is yet another type of effect you create – creativity. (Well…budding. :-))

  1. To Geir Isene – EXPLORER of free will

    Is there an explorer’s club meeting scheduled?

    Wonderful poem!

  2. “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
    How I wonder what you are.
    Up above the clouds so high
    Like a diamond in the sky.
    Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
    How I wonder what you are.”
    – Mozart age 6

    “Blinding fury vast globe of fusion
    Your light I spy is no illusion.
    And swirling worlds around you spin.
    Is looking back at me a friend?
    Gazing a Trilobite’s light from my little sun?
    If my friend can wonder, we are one.”
    – Katageek Looking at the Hubbard Deep Field Image Age 35

  3. When I was a kid
    My purpose
    (Over which I lost myself)
    Was to discover
    The meaning of life

    When I became a grown man
    My purpose
    (Over which I recovered myself)
    Was to give
    life a meaning

    Now that I am old
    My purpose
    (Over which my dream is to let go of myself)
    Is to see the why, at infinity,
    and transcend the meaning of life

  4. By Pema Chodron “When Things Fall Apart”

    β€Ž”This very moment is the perfect teacher.

    Generally speaking we regard discomfort in any form as bad news. But for practitioners or spiritual warriors. People who have a certain hunger to know what is true, feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger jealousy, fear instead of being bad news are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we are holding back.

    They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel like we would rather collapse and back away.

    They’re like messengers that show us with terrifying clarity exactly where we’re stuck.

    This very moment is the perfect teacher and lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are.”

    (PERSONAL NOTE: This applies even for Thetan-Less meat wads… )
