Caveat: Tree #129

Here is a tree from the archives. I took this picture of a tree at the back entrance (parking garage entrance) of the Urimbobo apartment building, where I lived for 7 out of the 11 years I lived in Korea. So I knew the tree well, and no doubt walked past it hundreds if not thousands of times – I would pass it anytime I left my apartment building to go anywhere except to work, as all the shopping and the closest subway station were out the back entrance.

At the time I took the picture, I was noticing the Buddhist icon (the swastika) on the advertising – realizing I had a Buddhist fortune-teller in my building with me.

I didn’t take a picture of a tree today because I was working on my well-head-shed-thingy, and got really tired out doing that.

Caveat: Poem #1014

The thought climbs up astride its weary mount
  To better seek and target its intents,
  Infecting other minds like airbourne scents -
A viral dream where every glance will count.

A prophet then, I forge through these events,
  Betraying with my words their very fount
  And caring not at all - who could discount?
You see them, now, such cloudy, cool portents.

Let's undertake to rule the world's wide mind
  By sending out that energetic thought:
Its consequences gradually unwind.

And finally, behold what thinking wrought:
  Baroque descriptions seemingly designed
To lift a universe up out from nought.
