Have you ever…
- Looked forward to something that resulted in something vastly different?
- Expended effort that did not produce fruition?
- Gotten involved in an activity that became incompatable?
Sometimes life just is.
Nothing is as nothing is
to both you and me.
Fortune and misfortune are neighbors
Plants need sun to flourish
but rain too.
Mother Nature can’t be told
what and when to do.
One left eye and one right,
Two sides of the same coin.
The charming stone wall beckons
a flux of flowers
but wasps and snakes find home here too.
Appreciating a plentiful crop
dwindles garden blemishes.
“If only they didn’t destroy the plants…
but there’s really more than enough.
“They didn’t eat much anyway.”
A gardener’s small loss; an insect‘s joy.
Misfortune is what fortune depends on.
Fortune is where misfortune hides beneath.— Tao Te Ching
