MY RELIGION IS KINDNESS - RE : KWAN YIN'S BLOSSOMS IN WEYMOUTH

Yesterday, leaving the harbour area, walking towards North Quay, i bump into the "soft-slippered" lady from my "KWAN YIN" poem, posted here on 23 / 02 /2012. Not unusual, of itself, as i see her quite often, and usually stop to chat. We go back 27 years. Until recently, she was always accompanied by her giant of a husband.....ANYWAY, she had just come out of an establishment, where the fish nibble at ones feet in tanks of water ! i ask her if this is what she has been up to, just to amuse her. No, she has just had her hair done. After a little banter with the young hairdresser and myself...Churchill speeches!! etc. she begins to worry as to how she will get home on her "bad feet". The hairdresser had agreed to see her home, but i say i will, as i am going in that direction myself -towards ASDA - near where she lives. i am happy to do this. We walk arm-in-arm, VERY SLOWLY..like walking meditation - very mindfully. All the while, she is saying "hello&q…

A CUE FROM CYRANO DE B.

YESTERDAY,
somewhere up
a street
in falling rain
and blossoms
tears
had not
been bargained for.

TODAY,
somewhere in
this world
love smiled
and played
with all
the warmth
the sun
could summon.

& TOMORROW ?
tomorrow we'll
gather the fruits
and flowers
&
lay them
at the altar
of a harvest
moon.

A GREEN AND PLEASANT LAND for K.H.

Image
A blight on my brother's "green and pleasant", are the fields of rape i glimpse, thru trees, thru Martinstown. But they make a pleasant picture methinks. They have a certain appeal, if one can put a hold on one's English sensibilities. Better the rape, than more herds of beef and dairy cattle grazing, where once was forest. "We" paved the way for the clearing of the Amazon Rainforests, for cattle, for McDonald's. As the grafitti poet put it - EAT HAMBURGER, BECOME HAMBURGER ! And it became our heart's unease/dis-ease ! But yellow fields are the thin end of the wedge. And if the brother had been with me today, we would, together, have seen, from aboard a bus leaving Bridport's West Bay, a most glorious, quintessentially English, YELLOW FIELD OF BUTTERCUPS ! Thousands upon thousands of 'em. As dense and as yellow, as i have ever seen. And i thought of how many one could've picked, to hold under a girl-friend's chin, and see the yellow …

WHY I GO NOWHERE : #3 - TO DORCHESTER MARKET

Image
Left home @ 7.30 this morning - love early starts - always raring to go. Thought about catching local No.5 bus into town but decided to walk across Radipole Lake (R.S.P.B. Reserve)...

...just half-a-minute away from house. 10 minutes to get to the other side, and another 5 or 6 minutes to the sea-front...

... and just a few minutes to wait for No.31 to Dorchester, after a long chat with Aidan Chapman @ his PHOENIX BAKERY, and eyeing-up the bread he was busy making, for a purchase, for  when i get back from market. *
@ HOME, BACK FROM MARKET laid-out my purchases...


...and here's a closer look...

...vegetarian sushi (for me), and sushi with fish (for my sister). WEYSUSHI have a stall in the covered section of the market. 2 young Japanese women, were up very early this morning, to prepare everything. But, oh! i forgot to ask their names! i was the first customer of their morning. 2nd time i had been there for sushi. Nearby, bought some mushrooms once again...

i do aim at 100% organic foods.…
