The perfect man uses his mind as a mirror.It grasps nothing. It regrets nothing.It receives but does not keep.

Chuang Tzu

In double mirrors

                true and false

we are frangible

                skin’s visible default

bony anchors

                loosening ligaments

the moment of meiosis.

                How negligibly begun

but no less purposeful

                zygotes, chiasmic.

As slow doors open

“learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success.”
― Brian Adams

To Impatience Don’t wish your life away my mother said and I saw past her words that same day.



IMPATIENCEWhen patience starts to wear too thin,Resentment rises to the skies;It often leads to social sin,And troubles in the home arise.When patience leaves, tempers will flare,Emotions will get out of hand;No middle ground will any share,No compromise will understand.Hostility will rule the roost,Each side feels fully justified;Hot words will serve to fire boost,With both the senses mystified.A cooling break must first occur,Ere calmer minds can then prevail; Unless the parties would preferTo let relationship just fail.Sol the Sage
