3 Perfect Poems

Image

1.

i dreamt of
meditating
on perfection–
what is attainable,
and what is not.
i woke up aware
of my doomed 
craving,
and the knowledge
that everything is
flawed–
forever caught between 
mystery 
and banality–
seeing the mechanics
behind the trick
of never enough.

2.
(written for fellow Misfit, Donna)

self is the jewel
in the lotus of the cosmos,
sublime crystal glow

your craving for perfection
is only a hungry ghost.

3.

the imperfections
of bodies, hearts or souls
never preclude joy

each breath stokes inner fire
ecstasy where self meets world
