Change – Choka – July 19, 2016

frosted lake

another passing
another moment of change
another heart-break
more tears to water my cheeks
and each moment feels
like my heart can stand no more
yet the road goes on
and the wheels keep turning ’round
another passing
another moment of change
but life continues
each morning the sun rises
the cocks crow loudly
the rain still falls – winds still blow
telling me all’s well
I miss you, my once good friend
there’s no passing here
you only gave in and up
I cry for the dead
they are forever gone now
they have no choice left
their fight is over
it’s for you that I despair
for you my heart breaks
this other kind of passing
this other moment of change

Inevitable – Morning Haiku and Waka – November 24, 2015

Early Snow_sharpened

in this silence
walking through a snow bound field
a frozen red rose

the long cold nights of winter
yield to spring

the last leaf
rains down from the ash tree
bleak is the sleeping forest
but for the eternal pines

barren branches dressed
in sparkling white winter robes
ash trees and palms

endless cycles
inevitable – changes
each sunrise is a new day
each sunset a passing

OctPoWriMo (Chained Shadorma) – Day 8 – October8, 2015

Wind and willow

Wind and willow

the whispering wind
coming change …
and where will the wind take me?
I really don’t know

rode the wind to oz
from Kansas,
this story
about changing and growing
might be the answer

puzzles and magic
and heart-break
without her ruby slippers
I’ll never return

is another day
or perhaps
is time perhaps relative …
[infinite cycles]

For Brenda – The Sunday Whirl – March 30, 2015

repair, deal, craft, sing, billow, add, change, frame, back exist, fiery, call

For Brenda

In life we deal with change
From the moment that we’re born
And we craft our life around
The frames that fall apart

Sing a happy song
For the call has come again
When the wind of change does billow
And you live – not just exist

Fiery can be the trials
Upon the wanderers trail
Repair behind a happy song
When life deals you a new hand

Sing a happy song
For the call has come again
When the wind of change does billow
And you live – not just exist

Just a Note – July 8, 2014

Hello World!


I’m here to give you a little update on what I’m doing these days.

First of all, I’ve been doing a little work on my computer.  I cloned my tiny old hard-disk onto a monster disk of one terabyte!  Then I put in a new antivirus which also works inside Firefox.  Last weekend, my mail account was infiltrated.  Some strange message went out and if it hadn’t been for a couple of obsolete addresses, it might have kept on doing it for a while.  Fortunately I caught the thing a few minutes after it sent it’s message.  So I cleaned out my trash-bin, changed my password and opened a new account which I’ve begun using.

I’ve also opened up a private blog that I had opened last year called: Bastet’s Silver Polishing and the purpose of it is to slowly edit my old poetry and short stories into a readable form, possibly in view of publishing…yeah I’m a slow poke.

I’ve also re-opened and refurbished my old Blogger blog and I’ve named it Bastet’s Waka Library here I will be transferring the stuff I’ve written in the last year in regards to Japanese Poetry and where I’ll be writing my future Waka (Japanese Poetry).

I’m going to try to publish at least daily on Through the Eye of Bastet and here I’m going to be doing my short stories, flash fiction and general prose.

I’ll also do a round-up of what I’ve posted and where in the morning.

I’ve got some other things I’m planning to change … but that’s a future post!

Ciao, Bastet!
