compost

i suspect if chirst and krishna
taught classes side by side
they’d both tell their students
to serve their teachers
by serving each other

devotion is not an emotion
but a promise lived out in action

do you change the litter box
because you love your cat
or do you love your cat
because you change the litter box?

in my kitchen is a bucket
collecting scraps for the compost
it’s starting to smell
like decay and rotten fruit
it’s starting to smell
like rich soil and growing things
in the light of day
i will dump it by the garden

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
