POEMS

Here is a toilet where you can flush your poems down.
There is a poem that you can flush your toilets down.
Here is a thread where poems are discussed,
Only post if you know you must.

Up, up! Went the circling birds,
Down, down! Goes this stinking turd,
All poems are Wisdom, that's quite clear;
But only the good ones - do you catch my meaning, dear?

Methinks a poet can be a master, too;
But I'm no master - I leave that crap to you.
Wonderful, wonderful! The bird circles clear,

The blue mountain dances
But 'tis not I that have ears.
The green woman laughs,
To keep the birds clear.

Middle, middle! Inexorable middle way;
This, this! It's free - you don't have to p(l)ay.
"The Way needs no cultivation, just do not defile. What is defilement? When with a mind of birth and death one acts in a contrived way, then everything is a defilement. If one wants to know the Way directly: Ordinary Mind is the Way!"

Exegesis:
Here is a toilet where you can flush your poems down.
There is a poem that you can flush your toilets down.
When a cow shits, a beetle drinks.
Here is a thread where poems are discussed,
Only post if you know you must.
Once you've posted, you'll see the way of things.
Up, up! Went the circling birds,
Down, down! Goes this stinking turd,
South of the river, west of the bank.
All poems are Wisdom, that's quite clear;
But only the good ones - do you catch my meaning, dear?
Back in the day this was true. People were naked and spoke to each other in poetry.
Methinks a poet can be a master, too;
But I'm no master - I leave that crap to you.
Wonderful, wonderful! The bird circles clear,
Those who take on students insult themselves and everyone else. Therefore, endless respect to them.
The blue mountain dances
But 'tis not I that have ears.
It's not that there aren't ears. They resonate a vibration.
The green woman laughs,
To keep the birds clear.
Please, please, be compassionate. Please. Pretty please. Even if they saw you limb-from-limb, be compassionate. Please!
Middle, middle! Inexorable middle way;
This, this! It's free - you don't have to p(l)ay.
Never ever ever take a position or strike a posture. Play if you want to, but the core point is freedom.

Poems are the music of the devil.

In south school we fight with him.

Love it, thanks!

I'm a poet at heart and both tried the "effort" and "spontaneous" approach
poems appear often but never have a pen ready
when I sit with a pen in hand, no words manifest, just the rudimentry tingling energy or modifications of consciousness people call "thoughts"
then I just laugh at my "efforts" of catching these insubstantial breezes.
so there it is laughter, release! The poem complete!

Keep them coming though ;)

The witch is dead
I am feeling a bit Hungary.

As the train moves by, far, far away,
I see a moth trapped in the sunlight.
It is the evening and winter of his world,
though it be the ceaseless Spring in mine.
An explosion of life, death, spring, winter -
All is trapped in the spider's web,
As the moth begins his journey.

Fool me once, shame on...
Fool me twice, shame on...
Fool me thrice, shame on...
