but we think of them as glass or bits of stone.
We often sell them as cheap pieces of junk,
but yet always we think of them as unknown.

I am falling, and I need wine to be mine.
Being inebriated has its own joy,

Is it more painful than life made me cry?

Too many shadows are passing me by.

What is this consciousness that feels so sublime?
They told me that I am conscious of my time.
It is all gloomy and dark with lots of pain.
If I'm conscious, is it virtue or a crime?

Beside me singing in the wilderness—
Oh, wilderness were paradise enow.

Seek to know how,
Be mindful now.

Find your calm space,
Sit still in place.

Focus your will.

Relax and see,
Stillness can free.

A certain ease,
Now rains calm peace.

Purge stress and strain,
Watch poise touch...

The fuzzy, wuzzy bumble bee
a fussy, hussy bee was he
because he lost his buzz you see
in a muggy, buggy mushroom tree

On mushrooms bitter, boggy black,

Meet with calm poise the truth most kind,
Apt joy greets voice with peace of mind;
Zest transcends noise as love moves grand,

By this bus stop
A posture grips,
Soft drizzle drops
This waiting trip.

Rain fresh and wet
Cools the hot heat,
I stake my bets
For late bus beat.

Strange faces wait
For quite some time,
Cellphones now state
Such curious chimes.

Humid yet wet
