unexpected guests

i painted a window

to hold

the golden dreams

of a

sunlit day…

but

before i could fill the window with splashes of bright,

a giant bug walked across my journal…

.

and then one flew into my hair,

and all thoughts of sunshine

vanished into my shriek .

.

who needs a zen master

slapping

when nature provides the sounds

of one hand clapping.
