ไม่เป็นไร

ไม่เป็นไร
seems related
to faith
in rebirth
and a kammically
moral universe,
namely that,
given even
moderate effort
and craving
in life,
the universe
will eventually
conspire to
place one where
one should be.
of course,
not worrying
intentionally
means that
unconscious
and biological
circumstances
drive becoming,
like samsara
on auto-pilot.
even nibbana
requires craving
craving’s end.
for positive ends,
ไม่เป็นไร
still requires effort.

stars and pines…

stars and pines
dry bluegreen
silence smell
the memories
of a house-dweller
absolute answer
ominously
on the edge
life’s end
vibrance-then-lack
and no words
or half answers
waiting on goals
for circumstances
to change
intention with meaning
without action
this is ‘mind’
cold underlays
all effort
but the cold
isn’t cold
the waves crest
into effervescent ice
out of
the ocean’s current.
