Sweet Dignity – a Shi Rensa haiku a poem

SWEET DIGNITY

the world slips along
nothing trying to save it
but with grace, we can

but with grace, we can
fight against the flow of fate
slipping past tyrants

slipping past tyrants
decency defines the day
with decisions made

with decisions made
we slip into a new world
of known dignity

the final bow – a poem

the final bow

the great hall grows cold,

no cheers or laughter abound,

for the fallen lead

new storms ahead – a poem

new storms ahead

*

~

*

with one cold shudder

life falls into the abyss,

never to return

 

never to return,

the frozen traumatized land,

the dirt now laid bare

 

the dirt now laid bare,

irresponsibility,

its cutting care spent

 

its cutting care spent,

abused lands once more tended,

new red flags ahead

*

I imagine those reading this one might think of a certain topic but it has many meanings. Did you know that when farmers, gardeners, and anyone who has to dig in a new area should get a person to come out and search for the utilities underground first? The person will place red flags where any existing areas of concern are which will remain areas of concern for the future unless the utility is rerouted, made obsolete, or the person needing to dig, finds another, equally or more fertile place to dig.

Disbelief – a poem

savor one sweet sip

from the heart’s cup of belief

weep eternally

unity through community – a poem

hope comes with meeting

the opposite of yourself,

once met never parts

 

Yes, it’s a man bun.
