Running Poem R082

Remember today
When you ran like the wind –
Remember today –
When lightning couldn’t catch you –
Remember today –
When thunder clapped for you –
Remember today –
Because one day –
It will not be this way –
When the storms of time –
Will wreck –
Your body and your mind

Big Lift Ferry Poem F392

Gazelle, machine –
Horse, deer, wind –
Or some other thing –
What do I like my running
To be compared to?
There’s only one thing –
That my running
Truly compares to –
That is the wind –
I run like the wind

Starry Days

May all your nights be starry –
May all your days be bright –
But may they, too, be starry –
As any starry night

Why I Do Things My Way

I often do things my way –
Not some traditional way –
Let’s get that clear right away

Not for the sake of need –
Nor for the sake of show –
Nor originality –
Nor creativity

But because it works well –
And because it works better –
Than conventional ways –
For me

Automatic Email Sign Offs

How sincere could most –
Yours sincerely be?
How authentic could most –
Kind regards be?
How genuine could most –
All the best be?

If you don’t mean it –
Then don’t write it –
Cause folks won’t take it –
The way you meant it –
And might judge you for it –
Or best, disregard it

Seriously yours,
Minh
