>Awareness poets united thursday think tank #38-quotes and quotations

>If sidled up to a tiger
be sure to close your mind
while counting stripes with
alternating colour.
Teeth that gorge or claws
slicing you into shreds.
If vexed by a hurricane
be sure to board your windows
while considering which
way the wind is blowing.
Eyes that dump torrential rain
or lightning thrown like knives.
In a garden so many things
to speculate,
how a flower creases into itself
or leaves that fall away dead.
We have to deal with such intricate measures.

“Things do not change; we change.”
Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862)
