Haiku, Scribbles

Hopeless Haiku

The other day my inbox had a new ‘Buddha at the Gas Pump’ interview….I get these on a regular basis along with poetry from ‘A Year of Being Here’ and thoughtful quotes from ‘The Ripples Guy’

I don’t always follow the link to the interviews…I always read the poems and quotes.

This day my instinct was to check the interview as well.

So I did. It was interesting. It was annoying. Challenging too.

It was Rick Archer with Unmani?

I looked around for other stuff by her and found  this video talk by her. It’ll also provide some context to the work below which flowed as a stream of consciousness after watching the video. True scribbles.

I am posting this as a piece of artpoetryhaikuthematic.

   ~~~~~~~

This is what it is

not going to get better

only the present

~~~~~~~

time to stop looking

it is a hopeless journey

nothing to be found

    ~~~~~~~

a mystic said this

no teacher is needed

the buddha is dead

    ~~~~~~~

one step at a time

i realised i was lost

life opened my heart

   ~~~~~~~

i have had enough

the truth is that i don’t know

it is time to die

     ~~~~~~~

letting it all go

every last idea

there is no more hope

    ~~~~~~~

terrifying now

now that has no way forward

or now no way back

     ~~~~~~~

spiritual path

is a road to nowhere

let go of it all

     ~~~~~~~

writing these haiku

i am just following thought

is this the now now

~~~~~~~
