Believe Nothing


“Believe nothing, no matter

where you read it,

or who said it, no matter

if I have said it,

unless it agrees with

your own reason and

your own common sense.”


~ Buddha


Elfje:         (Cinquain)



common sense

practical rational knowledge

horse sense, good sense





eyes look to the east

summer heat births tropic storms

hurricane season




is it so wrong to love my stuff
when is enough ever enough
reminders of events and sentiments
things that hold a very specialness

stuck in storage the last fifteen years
having trouble holding back the tears
filling my life with rhyme and reason
mirroring the life in every season

pictures, trinkets, souvenirs
things collected over the years
been there, done that, remember when
times and places I would love to visit again

stuff collecting dust, stuff taking up space
things and memories only I can embrace


ME and the Boss
