Seeking some meaning,

I read until my arm hurts…

drifting into peace.

(To be continued…)

Europa_ 1979.07.09, Voyager 2 (b)

Pain and suffering,

apparently constant,

inescapable,

in this fallen world.

Like a noble truth,

only relief comes

through delusion,

intoxication of senses…

Alas, temporal.

Tonight’s belief, conviction,

tomorrow’s confusion…

(How long can we fight the pain?

How long can we live this life?)

… Regardless,

the oxymorons

of existence in this realm,

sooner or later,

will smack us in the face,

smart,

surprise and “delight”,

burning ice.

Hot Air Balloon 1

Melancholy pervades today’s celebration.

Constant fragility.

Memories of yesterday,

betrayal and pain,

shaping tomorrow.

What hope?

So, here I am again,

apparently

ensconsced on the path of least resistance,

like electricity,

mercurial, and regretful,

fearing surges, complications,

change,

interruptions to supply,

threats to survival,

“denial of service attacks”.

History informs, scintillates,

reminds,

and terrifies.

People are the thing, alas.

In society,

futility and perfidy abound …

knives still in my back.

Regardless,

Happy Birthday, me.

And woe betide my enemies.

Nothing is impossible,

it seems,

except improvement

of situation.

I may have known the answer,

but that was yesterday.

Today I am confused and overcome

by feelings of futility.

I therefore try to forget the question

and its implications,

burdens I cannot now take.

… Inside,

I walk away.

Apollo 11 Re-Entry

So,

you dream,

you think,

you aspire.

Alas,

it’s the return to Earth

that’s the killer.

7.09 (1425)

To be a part of the constellation of life,

sometimes,

is enough.

Enlightenment,

and a touch.

BMW Nazi

The Nazis “lost”,

but actually they won,

(seeds) in your hearts and minds,

the machines you drive, desire.

… Money and prestige

trumps morality.

Ivan Shadr, v1

Women, men,

deep and shallow,

we all want to be liked,

appreciated,

ultimately desired.
