nowhere to be seen,
just the occidental’s dream,
all there is, is the now,
my not so shy, oriental dove.

for the sage,
his day is your night.
your perceived reality, his dream,
this universe merely an illusion.

appearing to be real
outside of the mirror,
as though a reflection.

living this indeed
will be your second coming!

imaginary conversation between a sage and a damsel
Rob-bigfoot Sep 2021
Pride should not prevent a pious Blind Pilgrim,
From accepting a meal with a wealthy camel trader,
Fear should never deter Love’s Crusader,
Even if the battle ahead is tough, ****** and grim.

Envy, a curse and pandemic through the ages,
Must be faced and fought with steely determination,
Gluttony is the hideous blight of our generation,
That shames us daily on television and the news pages.

Compassion is in chronic, worldwide shortage,
A sin that it is rationed, begs to be a universal gift,
Charity begins in the heart, should never be cast adrift
Humbled, to the needy we should pay due homage.

It is perilous that we give up on hope,
Without it our futures will be perennially bleak,
Cruelty has many forms, the preserve of the weak,
That may torture an innocent into a bloodied coil of rope.

Avarice is the unremitting creature of our downfall,
Lures us into a riotous Palace of Lies and Deceit,
Resolve always needed to keep step with life’s drumbeat,
Falling behind, may jeopardy a joyous windfall.

Not sure about the first 2 lines. If penned by someone my apologies. Just popped into my head.

Hidden in the sage
There are
Petals of a new voice
Soft familiarity
Blurred edges
Like a riverbed

A yesterday life distant

Abandoned before arrival
There is a slow call
Back to the pale brush
Patiently waiting
For the return of the aroma
Named change

They have

"Folly kills a fool by foolery, and prudence makes flourish a sage by wisdom."

This is sage advice,
At gigolos don't look twice,
It's a pandemic world,
Solo *******, guys and girls,
All around the  world,'
Blip yourselves, dudes and girls,
Then on with the happy pants,
Back to online work, us ants,
How do I know all this?
Google's life coaching is the blip!
Feedback welcome.

Truth is acrimonious while deceit is honey
as getting p*y. But a sage cherished reality.
And fool falls by his folly. Foolery kills the scuffer
but prudence makes a wise discovery.

Truth is quite acrimonious on the tongue of scoff but sweet

in the
throat of
sage . At all cost
endeavor, spit it out !
