Morning Glory Poem

Came across a little book of prose poems by Robert Bly called The Morning Glory with this haiku from Basho in the introduction:

 

The morning glory–

another thing

that will never be my friend.

I’ve been crocheting morning glory vine – most recently made two big “spider” webs for Hallowe’en decoration.

I’m trying to be a good friend..

Steve Jobs on Death

“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away.”
