Admirers bow to the vibrancy and strength of generosity
and yet it is delicate
a thousand misfortunes may swarm it.
For it's our treasures that we give
and freely too,
since that is all we have to do with them.
to give
to wait
to celebrate
are we judicious and pleasant
when heartbreak is what has earned all this?
Proud towers are toppled in the wake of generous reproaches.

comings and goings of the ponies.They had managed to bring in the elegant beds with a herculean effort of pulleys and carts, but considered the comfort and beauty that resulted clearly worth it.

The secret thinker
a bandit who steals from the enemy-
the damsel in distress is your conundrum.
As a habit you take stock of everything
but habits sometimes lead to salty tears.
Still, it's best to face unwanted truths
when powders pearls and turbans
can't protect you.
A lady step by step, alone
acheives earthly comforts
and friendly privacy.
Alone and afflicted
but sheltering a vivid essential feeling
we see how you can bow and bend.
Your strength is formidable.
You find yourself remembering
the freedom of absorption in a task-
the perfection of a companion cat.
What bliss to lay the past to rest.

Dashing forward while looking back is safe in open fields
I see my bracelet on my wrist and how it glitters
The hat has been tipped, the dance danced
The easy gypsy queen is seated on her throne
so many pleasures overwhelm
as sweet charm springs to victory
the night garden of life as it is
the mandala of flowers in the morning
