Burning Bush

Burning Bush

inside a burning bush
      he thought he'd 
   found an answer

      nothing so clear
as a misconception

what kind of answer
      do we expect

      of a question
nobody ever asked

there's a green thing
      in a green bush
   this time of year

      it looks like a 
      green flower

   it should not exist
you know it shouldn't

      to me it does not 
      look like a ram

   not a respectable
sacrifice to any god

      (how are we 
supposed to know)

One thought on “Burning Bush

  1. Your writing is beginning to remind me more and more of me. For example: Expectation (A long poem. Excuse me. It had to be.)

    Sometimes phrase, sometimes word. It doesn’t take much to inspire – To set off a fire In the rubber tire of the mind Which rolling ‘long Has strong beliefs involving What will happen or has not lived up to: Expectation.

    She had expectations for the future; She expected to inherit and was disappointed When it’s only feature Was a fraction Of her expectation.

    Expectation: good – or bad? An illusion of much possibility In the form of probability. All imagined!

    If it’s something you have had You know that all you’ve had Is based on supposition; Forecast and presumption, Guesswork, hopes and sheer projection.

    What to have or do instead? Anticipate no single thing! Take the future from your head. Substitute the ever-ringing, singing Now. Improve your character somehow Take the present moment As adornment and the midpoint Of your heart.

    Expectancy thinks, hopes that something good will happen. To expect has sides good/bad. Exclude it from your psyche. Open Up your mind to ‘knowing’ it’s all good; Stay in the neighbourhood of that instead! Expectation 6.7.2022 Definitely Didactic II; Arlene Nover Corwin
