Polonius said that brevity is the soul of wit. I’m trying something new for me and it’s ever so brief. Life’s been a bit of a whirlwind lately and my brain is on overload. Much of my writing time and head-space have been given over to my next novel, As One Must, One Can. Thank you for understanding.

sunlight after rain

casts light on sodden pavement

my dry bones languish

nothing new under the sun

as one must, one can’t

HAFIZ’S  SOLUTION

            “You’re unbelievable, Trisha,” said Joe. “We’re stuck in the middle of nowhere and you’re reading poetry?”

            “The tow truck’s on its way. Nothing we can do but wait.” She grinned at him from the passenger seat, her feet propped on the dashboard.  “Relax. Enjoy the breeze.”

            “The repair bill’s gonna be astronomical.”

            “Could just be the battery.”

            “Or the transmission.”

            Joe’s mind raced from one awful conclusion to another as he paced back and forth in front of the stalled minivan.

            Trisha giggled.

            “What’s so funny?”   

            “Listen.” She read, “‘O someone should start laughing! Someone should start wildly laughing. Now!’”

NORTH STUDIO

He left delicate strokes of life

On rice paper.

Katsushika Hokusai embraced age,

Unshaken by his advancing years.

Seas swirled beneath his skillful fingers

As the eternal mountain loomed ahead.

Infinite wisdom rippled from the artist’s hand.

 

Here is her life.

Once young and wasteful,

Kishiko lights a candle.

Undimmed eyes stare into velvet darkness.

Sixty years flow behind her

As brilliant pathways loom ahead.

I am the artist.

 

Here is my life.

On the path,

Kindled by passion

Unafraid of the future.

Strength in my arms

And excitement in my steps,

I am Kishiko.

Hokusai had a long career, but he produced most of his important work after age 60. I find great comfort in this. To learn more about the prolific artist, click here.
