Begging Bowl

Night Fog 2


With begging bowl

go out in the world

to seek answers, not alms

why death and life

is so random,

why some are spared

and others not,

no mind to age, condition, status

all random, random.

And why glorious Autumn so violent

and why we live in the space

between joy and sorrow.

    Hello Sherry! So good to hear from you.
    And thank you for reading and commenting on this small poem.

    It expresses my chagrin at the world right now. So much beauty in daily doses; so much violence the same.

    Thank you, Sherry….my very best to you. xox

    Back for another read. Glorious. Beauty in the midst of sorrow.

    Thank you, Sherry. Wrote it in the midst of fear, something that I think many of us are thrown into these times. I had to find some balance, and am working on it.
