Yoga in Yoyogi park

Yoyogi park II (Mathias Sager, water mixable oil colour on canvas board, 53x46x0.4 cm (20.8″x18.1″x0.16″))

Beetles visiting nearby balcony
There I’m breathing, seeking harmony

Sing cicades’ and black crows’ voices
Drowned out by the crowds percussions

Dog runs, barbeque, photography
Calm and loud with friends and family

Nature culture, symbiosis to immerse in
Listen paint it, Yoga in the morning

The crowd

The crowd

Thirty seven million, one big pulsing metropolis.
But such diverse societies.
Never alone amongst, public apathetic loneliness.
But cooperative activities.

Housing very close to next, doors are shut for privacy.
But wired for full connectivity.
Collective traffic stream, numb and strict anonymity.
But rooted local community.

Transitions

See it.
You can’t ignore, so open.
Happy natural simplicity? Understand you
live with it.
Translate.

Believe it.
You must not fear, so dare.
Colorful enriched diversity? Trust you
deal with it.
Transpose.

Act on it.
You won’t stagnate, so share.
Growth enabled genuineness? Choose you
succeed with it.
Transform.

Be it.
You’ll never arrive, so live.
For all and everywhere? Here and now you
melt with it.
Transcend.
