Senryus 12


Senryus 12



Respect is like gold

it’s prized highly because 

of its rarity.



Defy the temptress

with your moral character

or some witnesses?



Words are precious gems.

Over-polished they become 

meaningless fragments.



Many people can 

calculate prices, but who

can assess value?



Experience is

your power to know your mistakes

as you repeat them.

The Simple Life


Everyone wants a

simpler way of life, but few

will give up their phone,


The New Frontier


The new frontier won’t

be found lightyears away, but

in the minds of men.

    Each part of this piece speaks simply and powerfully of truth and wisdom. I especially love The New Frontier, for it really is in each of us. Thank you for sharing this gem.
