Enlightenment

Seek Life after life
Illusive task to obtain
Beyond doubts and fall

Start and end  dramas 
Decipher complexities
Found partial answers 

Paradigm issues
Confusion overate quest
Esteem falters wit

Stand mindful actions
Stuck within clearer pathways
A stretch still needed

Persistent conscience
Always craved  enlightenment
Recall life purpose.

Misjudged

Standing still head's up
Retrospect greatest pitfalls 
Mass consciousness whim 

Wandering till dawn
Waiting brave for the result
Less breathe heartless beat

Until the mind soar
Now is  inexplicable
Sufferings indeed

People grim anew
For the best of all Juries
Render canny nod

Continued service
Captivated voter's wit
Last laugh never ends.

one leaf dangled

one leaf dangled from
a single spider-web strand
in fresh morning air

as I greeted the sun,
sitting under a tree in
my dew-filled backyard

I was stilled by the
beauty of this lone leaf, in
its simplicity

But, then the leaf fell
I was startled, but the joy
in my heart  remained

Blackjack Senryu String Part III

Well, I’m back again. I’m here to try out my luck. Be nice to me now. Will you let me win? I feel you are overdue to give me winners. Here is my money. Are those chips of yours lucky? I need some good luck. Shuffle up those cards. Make them all come out my way. All blackjacks for me! Here is my first bet. Just starting out small this time. I feel lucky now. An ace and a king! And that is my first blackjack! Thank you very much! You can’t pay me yet? I see you have a ten up. No insurance please. You don’t have blackjack I will guess you don’t have it. You don’t have an ace. And you have an ace. It’s only a push for me? And I don’t get paid! Let’s try it again. I will double my money. I need a blackjack. A eight and a three That is eleven for me. You have a six up. I will double down. Here is my extra money. Give me something good. You give me a five And that amounts to sixteen. I think you will bust. Do you have a ten underneath that six of yours? I hope you will bust. What? That is an ace! That gives you a seventeen! You beat me again! This is the last time. I’m almost out of money. Make this a good one. I have five and four That is a nine you gave me. Your up card is five. Double down again. I need a winner right now. Give me something big. You give me an ace. I have a soft twenty now. I want you to bust. Your hole card’s a jack. So that gives you a fifteen. Please go over now. And you draw a six! Twenty-one beats my twenty Forget it today!

Comments: I wanted to be an air force fighter pilot when I inquired into joining 
ROTC in college.  I didn't have 20/20 vision at the time so I could not.  So guess 
what?  I became a hard-charging paratrooper!  Since they would not let me fly, I 
made the decision to jump from a perfectly good airplane while in flight.

They informed me that I didn't have 20/20 vision at the time and was not selected. As a result, I switched to Army ROTC and had a wonderful time with twenty-one years of meritorious service.
