The Ocean’s Deception in the Moon’s Reflection


Aroma like fresh twilight, spring is here,
Evening sewn together with dark’s silver tears,
Lie on the sand, watching the moon rise,
Call upon the stars, bring day’s demise.
Water, like crystal, displays the reflection,
Shimmering like diamonds, wonderful deception,
The mirror image, so beautiful, so real,
Like two night skies, until reality revealed.

I watch the ocean, the second wondrous sky,
The awing lack of motion, fool any passerby,
And here I saw a young man, disorientated,
Walk to the ocean’s edge, stopped, contemplated,
I heard him whisper that he could for once touch perfection,
He reached for a star in the sky’s flawless reflection.

Alas, as he reached, he could not grasp,
Yet he thought just a miss, still could not see the mask,
He waded deeper to try and touch the moon,
But the ocean had fooled him and he was consumed.
Just like a lover with a mask full of lies,
The ocean dragged this man down to his demise,
Now, sinking deeper, the perfection never touched,
He tripped and he fell, from the blindness of lust.

He seduced me with a pure voice, spoke kind words, and stroked my hair to lower my guard, to make me trust him, to trick me!

Mizuki Nomura, Book Girl and the Corrupted Angel

Mastering the art of seduction gives one a great power, and like any power, it’s to be wielded with responsibility; a man who wields the art of seduction without a sense of responsibility and restraint is a walking proximity bomb of viral epidemics, needless procreation, heartbroken families, and shattered dreams.”

Mike Norton

The pit allows the grass to fall in

The proverb alludes to the pits the Kikuyu used to dig for trapping wild animals.  These pits were covered with sticks over which, as well as over borders, they put a layer of grass.  Since this grass often fell in the pit through the spaces between the sticks, so they say that often one falls into the pit dug by himself.

There is ‘surface’ water and ‘inside’ water. The land carries it along an ‘inside’ path. And then it comes out as spring water in the sea. The salt water is on the surface and the fresh water is inside. And Yolngu stories are the same ~ there are stories which go outside and there are inside stories too.

The importance and unimportance of the self cannot be exaggerated.

― R.H. Blyth

“As a rule the tales which get abroad in the world are false. . . . People always exaggerate things. More so, when months and years have passed and the place is distant do they relate any story they please, or even it put down in writing, so that at least it becomes established fact. . . . Anyhow, it is a world that is full of lies, and we shall make no mistake if we make up our minds that what we hear is really not at all strange and unusual but merely exaggerated in the telling.”

We all learn here by the honourable path of horrible mistakes.

“Because to take away a man’s freedom of choice, even his freedom to make the wrong choice, is to manipulate him as though he were a puppet and not a person.”

― Madeleine L’Engle

The reason that ‘guru’ is such a popular word is because ‘charlatan’ is so hard to spell.

― William J. Bernstein, The Investor’s Manifesto: Preparing for Prosperity, Armageddon, and Everything in Between

Let the fragrance of humour play in those eyes.
Imported midget of a soul, brown eyed,
Cuddled in cologne-sodden hands;
Worked out devil, doped in cognac.

“When a child asks you something, answer him, for goodness sake. But don’t make a production of it. Children are children, but they can spot an evasion faster than adults, and evasion simply muddles ’em.”
