09:34 pm - Solar Eclipse (05 20 2012)

New Moon again
playing tricks with my mind
and body
      I watch
the eclipse wondering

who pays attention
and what does it mean
to save all beings?

each day each night tides leave
hundreds of jellyfish on the sands
I return one to the ocean
but how can I save them all?

"when one is truly saved all
are saved", say the Scriptures
but this defies reason
for what about all the rest

still what if one's chant is
thunder strong
cutting through all
the illusions
cutting through many and one
what is left then?

the sun slip-slides behind the line of horizon
yet the light lingers
as if memories
of all bad deeds
and a few good ones

I returns
to an empty home
too tired to rest and sleep

I try
every mantra
every dharani I know

thank you!

And, by the way, I almost have it -- 18 series of photos that I like enough.
This sounds a bit criptic. I will explain later.

OK, a few details.

I want to produce an 18 months calendar with my photos (and maybe ku). it would be unusual in the following sense: many pages (maybe even each page, we will see) will display a central photo and in addition a few other smaller photos that put the central photo in context. I have counted what I have and I am positive that I have more than 18 I want to share (this one is one of them). More than 18 is a good problem to have.

I want to do it this Summer, by July at the latest.
