Cooling down that shopping


“I saw with open eyes

Singing birds sweet
Sold in the shops
For the people to eat,
Sold in the shops of
Stupidity Street.

I saw in vision
The worm in the wheat,
And in the shops nothing
For people to eat;
Nothing for sale in
Stupidity Street.”

(R. Hodgson in Stupidity Street)

The tranquility of the desert


“This is the land which ye
Shall divide by lot. And neither division nor unity
Matters. This is the land. We have our inheritance.”

Lazy Sunday afternoon


“Lazy Sunday afternoon
I’ve got no mind to worry?
Close my eyes and drift away.”

The red ball does not hinder you passing freely


“passing freely
through the temple grounds –
spring butterfly”

“Ici Dépot”, but only when is the store open?

“We’d stopped to look inside before
The windows of the other stores
But at this one here we stayed awhile
We stood to stare, and wish, and smile.”
