If I want to get an image of a tattoo engraved into my body…

If I want to get an image of a tattoo engraved into my body, I will choose the image of water. That is an image of nothing but movement with a peaceful sound. I choose water to remind me of purity, my real reflection before mixing it with anything else, because water never stops moving until it is mixed with solid and dirt. I choose water to remind me of clarity and transparency, because water is always crystal clear and transparent until it is mixed with solid and dirt. I choose water to remind me of freshness, my peace of mind before allowing all thoughts to enter like solid and dirt. I choose water to remind me of satisfaction, my real self before allowing thirst and desire to enter like solid and dirt. I choose water because it reminds me that I was once born just like water, and I can always be reminded by my pure existence, I choose water to remember how to deal with others around me, to be just like water, a pure reflection with soft movement and a peaceful sound. I choose water because it is what I like to remind myself with every minute of my being, to remember to be like water; before I think, I speak or I act, and this is the tattoo I would like to engrave into my body only it has no image and it never stops moving and will always have a graceful sound.

Sitting here with a beige apron on, A white sheet is spread right in-front of me, I smoke my cigarette while I look outside my window…

 

Sitting here with a beige apron on,

A white sheet is spread right in-front of me,

I smoke my cigarette while I look outside my window,

To see blue skies and the sound of birds on a tree,

My table-cloth has turned beige with left over elements just sitting there waiting for me,

A tea-cup and an old tea bag,

Some lavender flowers sitting separately,

A black notebook hidden under a cooking pan,

That is just empty.
