Poems by Brother Ollie: the Tired Monk
Those apple tree branches are the light for me in this poem - a bright solstice to you..and let's wish for longer hours of brightness..
Beautiful..that snow dusted ladder is such a profound image...
this is beautiful..."a little more light" our prayer is just that...
Well, after today we will have a little more light in the sky...but hopefully we will have a bit more light in the world as well!
Lovely, lighting up the darkness. Xmas lights are my favourite part of Christmas.
Nice to bring light into the darkness. I like the feel of this poem. I felt the cold, the monk's fatigue and world's darkness. Have a Merry Christmas.
Lovely write :D wishing you loads of light & happiness.
Alas there are many kind of darkness.. it's only the sun that soon will change the days.
The apple tree - the tree of knowledge..may we all learn to grow towards the light.Merry Christmas tired Monk!
I am sure it looks quite pretty but soon everyone will be displaying light on their house and gardens without the lamps and wiring.
Yes, a bit more light in our dark reality. Really like this poem,Elizabeth
Nice haiku/tanka strand to say good-by to hard year, hopefully the tired monk will find time to retreat in peace.
Yes, add your light! Wend it through. We count on you. Thank you!
a little more light... perhaps what we all need
