Be, a haiku

Image
30. Jan. 1970 By Alex Nuttall - Bio
Stay awake and be Like an over sunned flower Dried up all over.






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.

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.

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.
