What Swims

source

Amazing!!

They are swimming!!

One year old babes!

Swimming!

Amazing!!

 

Amazing is this human race!

They can kill their own kind

And burn their face!

 

An unpredictable kind

No one knows

What thoughts swim in minds

 

May be a gigantic mushroom

Snuffing out all life

Or

Birthing of a Christ!!

  1. That IS amazing, little water-babies. Also all of the various possibilities swimming in humankind's minds - the potential for good or evil. Let's keep hoping for the good!

  10. I felt such a strong voice in this. Love the perplexity over the human race that teaches babies to swim yet is so immature that all of life may be extinguished by ignorance. Am I reading too much into this?

  11. We all know how to swim, we just get taught to be scared.

  12. Wow! You have perfectly captured the great dichotomy of human deeds - the wild divergence between the capacity for life affirming exploits and life annihilating atrocities.

  15. Sumana,

    A wonderful sight and sign of progression, when a little child makes its first moves.Then the path of life and those unknown challlenges. Rather like the need to sink or swim, when those difficulties arise..
    Great prompt Sumana,

    Eileen
