Working through the  227 Rules For Monks. Who knew the simple life could be so complex. This another of the 92 pācittiyas.

Cast Aside

I take the picture

I point the camera

that’s it

the subject is usually in focus

it remains as I found it

I resist the temptation

to get it into better light

resist the temptation

to add to the scene

or take away from it

I don’t seek perfection

but let things

fall where they will

stationary in a context

that I didn’t create

the broken chair

the mattress still wrapped in plastic

never used

cast aside 

I take the picture

the subject tells the story

the picture tells you

nothing about me

Hey! Now you can give me $$$ to defray blog fees & buy coffee in Washington at 2018’s capfireslam.org – sweet,eh? paypal.me/TOpoet
