struggles against.

*

the turtle emerges from his shell.  we pray for rain.
we search for the dead.  illusion.  truth.  who is the hero?

*

the shoes.  the sword.  a sari.  something lost.  knowledge of enlightenment.
knowledge of the runes.  the road.  the journey.

*

there is one oak leaf left on the branch.
is there insight in solitude?

*

creativity/order/disorder    rationality.  humility.
a winter where lemons abound & fish climb the stairs.
