Haiku: Simple Abundance

The purpose of life,
patience and eat when hungry —
simple abundance

Poem ‘Abstract’


Duty is an abstraction
reality something else
It requires open eyes
a vision without frontiers
a heart of kindness, acceptance
of nature’s prevalence
not some token paradise
where we are an aberration


20,000 cormorants are too many
‘they’re eating all the fish’
Seven billion humans
are sustainable, though
not everyone has enough food
