THIS IS THE END
Doors closing and opening
New Age prophets say: when
one door closes another opens
And on the otherside there will be
sunshine & tulips in your favourite colour
Can this be true?
Others say: big things are in store
But I don’t know if I have the stomach
to explore a new metier Why should I?
This one has served me well
And what is this fascination with re-invention?
I may choose to un-become to eat
breathe and sleep If the tree falls
who cares if it is heard? It will decompose
When you see a tree you never ask what it means
So please do not foist upon me your
need to hear trees fall Basho wouldn’t
The temple bell stops –
but the sound keeps coming
out of the flowers
