Micropoetry: He Shone Brighter

He was broken. Wrought.
Yet he be adamantly sought.
More he cracked,
The more he got brighter.
Shone, ever, without a spot.

Tanka (pronounced TAH’N-KAH) is an older form of Japanese micropoetry that consists of five lines of poetry with syllables in the formation of 5-7-5-7-7.

Being Humble

Strike here. Gone there.
The Kafkaesque nature of
The momentary thought
Is worthy of being rare.

Doing. Redoing.
Writing. Wiping. Committing.
How else will you otherwise
Wayfind that Something?

Patience, my friend,
Is a costly affair.
If it strikes, it’s fair.
If it doesn’t, it still isn’t unfair.

Failure or pressure.
Spark or seizure.
Will you or won’t you
Then find the pleasure?

Being Wrong is fine.
Accepting Mistakes: even better.
Assuming ‘Another Fresh Start’
Is, quite humbly, the way to the Divine.
