045 → Perfection

Regrettable time
Spent on making sure life
Shone instead of worked.


044 → Loads

Keep them on your back
Until someone takes them off.
Then forsake for good.


043 → Lost Time

Never came back:
That for which I fought so much;
Neither needed now.


042 → Decisions

Here's how you will pick:
Think of something to believe in.
Call it true, don't blink;
When you decide, truth pristine,
Outcomes won't matter; all-in.

Cayó el árbol en medio del bosque pero nadie estaba para escucharlo.

El ruido fue tan ensordecedor que nadie oyo todo, mientras que todo resonó como nunca.

El árbol se disculpó por el ruido aunque nadie se quejara; sabía que era lo correcto por hacer.

The Wisdomy Vine 04

So what if I told you that
you're determined to end?
Wouldn't you have to deny yourself
and everything there is
In order to find other than your own
for freedom be enjoyed not alone.

041 → Milestones

Don't revert; it's done.
What you see now done, it's done;
Though nay set on stone.
Up to here. Full stop. Went blown:
Beautiful life from here on.


040 → Infinite Sappiness

I wonder what they think
If they have what's needed known
On pink-hearted roam.


039 → Note Key

Pluck, bend or press hard;
Music will sound anyways
Depending on who hears.


038 → Tired

Lack of strenght thereof
And many things together
They just don't mix well


037 → 1541461

I sent to entrust
Truth, so others be free
And freedom therein
To restore that which was lost
And to enjoy life with thee


036 → Letting Go

Inmensely helpful
Is to let things go as fast
As they fade away


035 → Persistence

Only is worth attention
If darn persistent


034 → The Back

Gotta watch your back
Otherwise no one will do
Unless there's some catch


033 → Time

Timeless eons' pass
For a clockwork mind like ours
For it passes; then comes.


032 → Truth

Nothing harder here
Than having proof disproved
On basis of hate.


031 → κοινωνία

Yow, how swift and neat
All bound chillin' together,
Tether no nether
Rather, heavenly feather
Bounding it all real quite 133t


030 → Pathway

Find thrive of your own:
Then subdue it to justice.
Repeat and then rinse.


029 ← Fellowship

Don't watch your own back
If there's others -- for you
To keep you intact


028 → Mindset

Keep things as they are
By watching others go by
Try moving pieces.
So then, you find out what was
To occur yet-not-so-fast.


027 → So Long

Let it go right trough,
That haunting glimpse of mayhem
Just past, the past past.


026 → Communicative Effectiveness

Message is alive
To thrive, fly; talk-in-disguise;
Which makes this so hard
Find the hidden meaning in
All uttered words that mattered.


025 → Tanka: Hold That Punchline

What if I told you
That you waylaid here in vain
Right before the end?
I would stop here and go back
Embracing hope and rest, friend.


024 → Minus One

I'm a patient boy
And I wait, I wait, I wait.
For that closing line.


023 → Unbeliever

No need for others
To regard me as honest
As long as I know.


022 → Consistency

Plain assiduity
Comes from really doing more
Than really needed.


021 → Wrench

Can turn out as enemy
Of reality.


020 → Side Effects

For wrong decisions
It don't matter if well-meant
Breaks ill others' hearts

Es una gran responsabilidad eso de dar.


Andando y caminando

El otro día me di una vuelta a pie por San Salvador. Algunas de las cosas más interesantes que noté son:

- Nadie anda a pie. En serio, nadie. La gente que camina, parece hacerlo por tramos cortitos. No sé si sentirme viejo o qué, pero yo de niño aprendí a caminar por toda la ciudad. Ahora es algo que solo se hace en algunas zonas del país, y por periodos cortos de tiempo.

- Caminando se siente que esta ciudad es graaande. En serio, especialmente con nuestro bello clima a mediodía. Terrible.

- Quizá por la cantidad de años que tengo de no andar a pie (en los últimos ha sido por buses, carros, etc.), no había pensado en que los ríos y quebradas son un ecosistema totalmente diferente dentro de la ciudad. Hemos excluído a la gente que no queremos ver, para que no sea vista en nuestras calles. Y después nos preguntamos por qué el ambiente social es como es.

019 → Penumbrae

Yearning for that light
When times require patience:
Knowledge precedes joy.


018 → Confesión

La publicación
De varios haikus acá
Va atrasada.

Ya, ni modo. Todos los haikus que terminan en 11:59 van publicados con un día de atraso. Así es la vida bloguera.


017 → Antidialéctico

Así la palabra es
Casi imagen.

"(...) À medida que a ciência vai combatendo ideologias, vai ela própria absorvendo imagens e se ideologizando"


016 → Contrapeso

Opposing forces
Full force and radiant logos
Bring conscience of truth

No man knows how bad he is till he has tried very hard to be good. A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is. After all, you find out the strength of the German army by fighting against it, not by giving in. You find out the strength of a wind by trying to walk against it, not by lying down. A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does not know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad people, in one sense, know very little about badness. They have lived a sheltered life by always giving in. We never find out the strength of the evil impulse inside us until we try to fight it (...). --Clive Staples L.

Bottomless black pit
Will come to witness for sure
Boundless bright exit
