deep breathes
be here now
non-attachment
controlled emotions
what is meant to be will be.
trapped in a cage of platitudes
a litany of buddhist banality.
sadness or displeasure
caused by the non-fulfilment
of one's hopes or expectations:
how many ways can one
learn about disappointment?

the hummingbirds have been gone for months
and the bougainvillea plant that was their home
is on life support. the clay has molded and most of the leaves
gone or dead. the few remaining leaves have yellowed.
time to throw away the weeds and pots and revert to
an empty porch. the ambition of raising plants
with love and passion is too tedious.
