Order and Compassion

Pythagorus surmised
a theorem of patterns
defining life’s mysteries

Despite my abhorrence
for numbers, I concur that
there is order to the unknown

Guided by compassion
I walk that intrepid riddle
seek the enlightened path.

( Image my own.)

Letting Go is Complicated

This confined life –
carefully construed –

ingrains order,
commands discipline.

I can free myself
from urbanity,
declare adventure
as prerogative, but

how long before
I release the need
for control, unburden
internal restraints

let go, and open
to divine rhythms?

Doubt I possess
the trust required
to live with such
