Morning Tea

Morning Tea

Bees buzzing the pale blue chicory flowers, legs fat with pollen.

Birds singing to their peers, warnings of lurking enemies.

Dogs defending their territory, planes rattling overhead.

Traffic hitting like waves along the morning shore.

Mikio had sat down to meditate and had fallen off to sleep.

Now the sun would test his mettle.

Cognitive Dissonance

Cognitive Dissonance

Not everything is always bad or always good.

Even tragedy happens in degrees.

There’s a yang of blessing in the yin of the disorder.

If Not For You

Mikio’s garden is a bit unkempt.

But not everyone thinks of bees and insects as something to be eradicated.

They deserve our respect too.

He Who Knows Does Not Speak

He Who KnowsI like the image of the lake, creating a backdrop that your mind can fill in.

Running a simulation of a duck algorithm.

Your brain creates the missing pieces.

Spring Rain

Spring Rain

Mikio was in the latter part of middle age.

Waiting on the light.

Night had turned to morning a bit too slowly.

He shivered in the cold.

Nothing in the world is softer and weaker than water.

But there is nothing better for brining down mighty stone and mountain.

It’s also pretty good for the garden.


Mikio spends a lot of time in the garden and in the kitchen.

There’s a good chance food will be involved.
