any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
L.O.V.E. Reminds me of "The Cloud of Unknowing"--why limit what we can learn from connecting with anything?
The fine art to connect
The rock is hard, will endure the storms and will make for a firm foundation - but maybe not a great bed for the sick to lay on, a bandage for a wounded solider. We have our hardnesses and our softnesses for a reason. And if we understand our own purpose, we can use them to meet it. Nice short piece.
ah - a rock is a sure foundation and will not break easily in a storm - for me it needs both - the soft and the firm - the unmovable and the adaptable
Love the wisdom in this beautiful piece :)Beautifully executed!Lots of love,Sanaa
Yes we exist and we're connected and that's marvelous. How lucker than the rock we are because we can be aware of this.
profound - I'll have to think on this one. A good poem stays with us and makes us think.
I admire the simplicity and wisdom of connecting to all ~
i envision you connecting with something soft... like a rose petal
You know, if everyone felt this way, we would do something about global warming, & balance the scales of justice. Zen philosophers belief that in some reincarnations, some souls choose to come back as a tree, or a rock; it is so lovely there are a few of us who appreciate the gesture.
Great idea Sumana! Get the best from what they can share with us and face a world more prepared!Hank
Beautiful. Last night I read that if you look at a rock, you are looking at a million years of history. True.
Short, sweet, and to the point. I like that. Peace, Linda
I like this poem very much, Sumana. Truly I believe we can connect with everything. Whether living or dead, animate or inanimate, we can find a connection with all that exists in our world.
Amen. Thank you.
Very nice !
Love.. writing.. air.. blood stOnes.. swiRling gOldenelecTrons of human nuclEus in flesh and hair..a grain of sand.. a rock of life.. a connectionto stars above.. exist.. in brush.. of lifeand light.. in loving nature one..as us..:)
Succinctly put, in a very Buddhist (or Jainist) way, that inter-connection between all creatures and things, great and small.
I love the brevity of this deep truth--we are all one.
On my trip to the west a few years back, rocks that caught my attention were the souvenirs I brought back. One that was heart shaped from my sister's in Az. and one from the Crazy Horse Monument for example. They mean more to me than anything I could buy in a tourist spot.
Wise words. We need more connections based on humanity, the common need to be loved and cared for.
Oh wow, I love this thought:"I too existThus I learnTo connect with all"
The rock holds firm in the face of challenges. It exists to carry on existence. A lovely poem.
The rock doesn't waiver and holds steady through life
a new favorite ~
cool piece. I like the idea that we can learn from any and anything.
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
