inside the mask
a faint whiff of grease
from this morning’s eggs
I find the outdoors
secure in its greatness
the sea still open
the sky limitless
the sky, the limit.
The challenge from Grace over at dverse is this:
“The challenge for today is to write zen poetry, with a focus on attaining moments of enlightment – or true clarity of mind — by emphasizing singular experiences.“
(This is an edit of a previous poem.)
Really enjoyed the sparse Zen essence in your writing here. Well done my friend. Have a great holiday and a happy new year, I will see you again then.
The last 3 lines are filled with possibilities!
limitless is sometimes very limiting.
Never enjoyed the outdoors as much as I do now. Beautiful, Jim!
And a Merry Christmas to you too , Geo!
