“Begging Bowl”

Roses, May

 

 

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.

    Yes, I like your idea of using a begging bowl as an analogy to being open to having the answers be received. Beautiful and sensitive, Jane. xo
