Gogyohka 8.6.09

In some seasons
even the burly bear
uses his bulldozer shoulders
that can crack a man's leg
to pick berries and grubs

When I was small
and my dad was big
I'd watch him stand in the doorway
rubbing his shoulders
back and forth like a bear

Technology leaps alone past the starter's gun
leaves the minds behind
leaves emotions
consciousness--all else
in the dust, straining to catch up

The one about technology is so true! And it's like as we let technology get ahead we have less and less of a desire to catch up. We just LET ourselves slow down eventually!
