To a Crisp

.
.              One's buttocks alas,
               may be fried, if one lives in 
               hubris and pride, or
               one's buttocks may be burnt if
               certain lessons are not lurnt.



Thought I'd try practicing a Tanka.

What A Beauty

<                                    beneath swollen ..... moon
                                      in pasture of...... rolling hills
                                      standing  ....hind quarters
                                      a beautiful black ...... stallion
                                      simply took my breath ........ away

Not Too Late

                                            Wednesday afternoon
                                            Blue fruits from the trial
                                          Smacks and hacks for sure

Your History

<                                 symbolic icon
                           abrupts captivating flight
                                    honoring fallen
                       amidst lined tombstone's marker
                             at historic Fort Snelling

No turning back

A Mothers Meditation

I taught her better.
I didn’t want this for her
She’s followed my tracks
Look at her, life is ruined
She knows not what she’s done


	The Daughters Disposition

	Wow, what did I do?
	I can’t bear the pain she flaunts
	Her disappointment…
	Stings… like a swift kick inside
	What on earth was I thinking?


A Teen Dad’s Train of Thought

Did I? I didn’t!
It wouldn’t have felt as good…
She took the pill right?
What if, she was with other guys?
What do I tell my parents?

"Studies and surveys of young teen males show they are worried the pleasure 
experienced during intercourse will diminish with the use of a condom."

We found the old emeralds
The tears of lovers
In hope to cover the Earth:

Meditative in Soothe

In contemplation
one soothes one's soul, mentally
Yoga's mechanics
also allows absorption
spiritual disciplines
