Night Thoughts

I cannot sleep.  The long, long
Night is full of bitterness.
I sit alone in my room,
Beside a smoky lamp.
I rub my heavy eyelids
And idly turn the pages
Of my book.  Again and again
I trim my brush and stir the ink.
The hours go by.  The moon comes
In the open window, pale
And bright like new money.
At last I fall asleep and
I dream of the days on the
River at Tsa-feng, and the
Friends of my youth in Yen Chao.
Young and happy we ran
Over the beautiful hills.
And now the years have gone by,
And I have never gone back.
           Lu Yu (1125 – 1209)
           Kenneth Rexroth
I rub my heavy eyelids
and turn the the pages
of my book.  I trim my brush
and stir the ink.  At last asleep,
I dream of the friends of
my youth and the days
on the streets of Naptown…….
What’s up family? Wishing you the
best of Night Thoughts

A child of the 60's I often feel out of place in the world as it exist today. Too much excess, too much materialism, too few people who genuinely care or give a damn. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. Antoine de Saint-Exupery
