Everything Is Unimportant


“If I write what I feel,

it’s to reduce

the fever of feeling.

What I confess

is unimportant,

because everything

is unimportant.”


~ Fernando Pessoa


Elfje:         (Cinquain)



very deep

philosophy of man

assumed to be true



Lune:    5 / 3 / 5


delicate wonders

fairy moss

delicious koi food




he forgot the words
the memory slowly fades
flew south with the birds
talking mostly with charades

faces familiar but not the names
recalling incidents from long ago
wooing flames and winning games
missed the lunch, another no show

grandchildren are a favorite topic
they call to remind him it is time to give
whose birthday, his thoughts myopic
can’t remember, the brain becomes a sieve

lamenting that life is too short
amazed at how fast time has flown
relying on others the last resort
how do you answer that damn smart phone

still there is gratitude for every day
and for another we always pray


ME and the Boss
