Be, a haiku

30. Jan. 1970 By Alex Nuttall - Bio Stay awake and be Like an over sunned flower Dried up all over. Washington and Glasgow Streets, Olde Towne Portsmouth, VA --"Be, a haiku" This Haiku was written on the 18th of July 1998. The accompanying photo was taken in Olde Towne Portsmouth, Virginia. This poem is about the state of being. Enjoying the sun, staying awake and drying up are states of being. The final line is the result of attachment to the state of being. It's a poem about Buddha mind. Buddho is the awakened mind.  by Alex Nuttall, title: Be, a haiku, Original Date: 19980718 – © Alex Nuttall / OgFOMK ArTS 1998 – 2018 – Retro-published 20180328. #AlexNuttall #OgFOMK #Poetry #Flower #Sun #Be #Haiku #Awake #Buddha

I Still Find Cigarette Butts

9 July 1998 By Alex Nuttall - Bio I still find cigarette butts Always appearing in the various boxes I have moved From a common residence to the one you found That I assumed residence of I still find cigarette rappers and other knick-knacks like drippled wax and broken incense sticks I still write words about these things So it goes. Why did I move to Norfolk’? You were The answer. Well, I am here, now you are gone, So it goes, like a Cigarette butt, Packed up and shipped out, Me and the cigarette now have liberty I still find cigarette butts and I remember so many times Emptying that ash tray of yours when it piled so high You just smoked. © Alexander Blair Nuttall / OGFOM-K Arts 1998 © Alexander Blair Nuttall / OgFOMK ArTS 1998 - 2017 20170626 -ABN

What Says Says

8 June 1998 @ 2111 By Alex Nuttall - Bio It looks so dirty Dateless moonbeams carry back Abysmal discussions in the Uncomfort zone All over tippy-toe tongues beaten down So many times before Afraid of what will be said But Says, says anyway. © Alexander Blair Nuttall / OGFOM-K Arts 1998 © Alexander Blair Nuttall / OgFOMK ArTS 1998 - 2017 20170723 -ABN
