Rambling, for Octpowrimo 6


Yesterday is but today’s memory, and tomorrow is today’s dream. (Gibran) and each day, thank God is different.  A variety of cereals for breakfast, diverse weather, events, people encountered; aches and pains in new places; mood unique, behaviour ditto.   This amphigory takes us nowhere except around in circles.

Stating the obvious
I parody philosophy
in meaningless words


Amphigory: a  nonsensical piece of writing, especially one intended as a parody



The prompt for Octpowrimo 6 is Life Changes, and at dVerse for Haibun Monday we were given two quotes and a self-portrait  of
artist/poet Kalil Gibran
as inspiration

    Not meaningless, I think, all those little details that make up our lives. 🙂

    Sometimes there is meaning in meaningless words. It’s one of those Zen things, I think!
