MAGPIE/ Prompt #93


Photo/ Christine Donnier-Valentin


 
THIS PHOTO is presented to us by Tess Kincaid at Magpie Tales, for Prompt #93....Let's see what we can make of it!


 
MINIMALISM

Looking for the new,
perhaps I could acquaint myself
with a blue sun,
a different law of karma,

isolate myself from the path,
float above the road,
lead a minimalist life.

There is a futility to wandering.
I blink at the impermanence
of an unmarked room,
the couch holding a lonely ghost
from the night before.

I dream of the silkiness
of an easy awakening,
no longer running from the cold,
going back to Alpha,
waiting for the morning breeze.

A different law of karma--that's what we all seek. Very good.

I like the idea of the "...silkiness
of an easy awakening..."

Helen said...

Lovely Magpie ... minimal is difficult to pull off, takes talent (which you have.)

Lyn said...

Hi Martin-
I sort of liked the "feel" of that, too, thanks so much!

Lyn said...

Hi Helen-
A good complement indeed, coming from you! Thanks...

This is beautiful, Lyn... I especially like:

the couch holding a lonely ghost
from the night before

Clever move to invoke minimalism. I like it very much.

Lyn said...

Hi Other Mary-
I too was happy when I found alpha..good place to be! Thank you...

Lyn said...

Hi Dave-
Thanks so much, Dave..this was an interesting challenge...I like the pared down life..but...

Lolamouse said...

You drew me right in with the blue sun, and I loved the entire poem! Every time I think I can minimalist, I end up with clutter! I guess I'm not wired that way!

Lyn said...

Hi Lolamouse-
Thank you... Minimalism is just a theory for me too!!

HyperCRYPTICal said...

Ah - just lovely! Thank you!

Anna :o]

Lyn said...

Hi Anna-
Thank YOU for being so kind!!

izzy said...

Sorry it took a while for me to get here! I am glad to visit.
I would like another angle on karma too- would a minimalist life, perhaps
include a more vivid and immediate awareness of karma ? thanks for visiting!

Lyn said...

Hi izzy-
Thanks for stopping by. I believe that the more we peel away, the clearer the karmic path becomes..till, last stop, nirvana!!

zongrik said...

last stanza is just great

Lyn said...
