    Just because the stars in the city are weak and few
    doesn't mean you should regret what still remains,
    nor that you should cease to gaze at them in wonder.
    Fool is the farmer who curses a shower
    when his fields need a downpour.
    Fool is the sailor who curses a breeze
    when his sails need a guster.

    Even when things aren't perfect,
    they are still perfect.

    Through Chaos

    Thrown to the winds
    a thistledown seed,
    to be helplessly blown
    is his only need.

    Isn't it funny,
    the pivotal things,
    like birthing and dying,
    through chaos life brings.

    * * *

    noise on tv,
    lawnmowers roar--
    but birds still sing

    V. nice. I esp. love the first one! :) Its really true. :)
  3. I remember haikus. They're fun. I liked your second more than the first, but that's only 'cause I'm kind of a stickler for meter.

    Wow, I didn't even realize that! I was just posting a few poems, didn't want to make seperate threads. But yeah, they do have some commonality...

    Good observation. And thank you all for the comments.
