Exposure

deviantart.com

The teacher appears
whenever the student
is ready.

Sometimes in disguise
he speaks
barbarian language.

I can’t get your tongue
woven soft dew drop
into slang.

Why heavens
divided whole
essence of soul
to segments?

Various lessons
we learn to combine
into one.

Until then
our wounds are open
to rough/ raw/ array...

  7. Yes, indeed. Some days the wise old sayings don't really help. As a teacher, I have to say that most often times, we come whether the student is ready or not.

    Happy New Year!

  8. A reminder to stay awake and open to the new things you come across.

  9. we must make sure that we recognize them when they come, as they will most likely be nothing like who we expect...

    happy new year.

  11. The opening concept sticks with me through to the end...intriguing who and what can be our teachers if we're awake to receive.
