  1. Basho’s Footprint

    Seek what’s been sought by the wise in texts of glowing poetry, in deep-
    singed blues
    in crypt-hewn runes,
    in deepest breath turned inward, surprising miles of memory
    in whispered library words
    by monks solitary
    in solidarity with Muse
    who wanders through all time, e-motion, all need for meaning
    Seek where your living leads
    expecting not, nor pleading for
    rejecting not, nor bleeding for
    with eyes, with mind, with hands

      Fantastic imagination for memories cannot be measured. Time never ends. No body can find where the end is. The breathing machine continues its work and the drummer in us get thumped up continuously. An endless painting of imagination. Good
