The crazy, inspirational, exhausting days of Occupy HK

The crazy, inspirational, exhausting days of Occupy HK

democracy now

So much has happened since I last posted here. There is so much I want to say and yet I have so little time and energy to say it. I will write again, that much I know. But for now, in between editing Varsity, teaching and much more besides, this is all that would flow:

The days

the days we dare
to hope and deign
to despair

the same days
we hurriedly erase
love’s most sacred corner
lest we lose her

and yet again
brush off fear
as if an errant strand of hair

before the dread
sticks in the throat
rings in the ears
stokes barely hidden fears

the days
that turn into days
we cannot tell apart

    nice reminder that everthing is temporary and therefore suffering in Buddhism. hope this is ok. but we remain in support even if it is emphemeral with the hope it benefits the next generations. You should see Cloud Atlas in this context… the book or movie.
