red bird can't wait


eternal questions:
who am I? why am I here?
do the flowers ask?

impatient for spring
grasses still bent under snow
the red bird can't wait

Existential questions, Janet....Humans think flowers bloom for them, Flowers don't know why they bloom...still they are waiting to bloom!

Red bird-- why should it wait?? Any real answer :)

Well, as a well-read bird, I couldn’t agree more! :)

Furthermore, ‘Word Verification’ says: ‘raw-zed-ic’ – characteristic of those who are expert readers of the last letter of the alphabet and who are wholly ignorant of the rest of the alphabet!?:) The more usual term, however, is ‘prone to selective reading’!:)

Devika~
Beauty is as beauty does?

Borut~
Is that natural selection?

Devika said...

Not a beauty, so I don't know...Just sharing a zen thought instead :)

“Ten thousand flowers in spring
the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer,
snow in winter.

If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.” Wu-men

Yes....I read that thump-thump...good :)

This need to be heard, I have had that...Now I don't think there's happiness there...This world won't change, nor will I, I rather keep my heartbeat unheard :)

devika

Janet said...

I hear you very well. :-)

I think each time we speak it is sharing the beat of the heart.

Devika said...

Yeah...very few hear, and even lesser few understand that...thanks Janet :)

Selective reading is, I guess, our second nature: it sounds unnatural!:)

Janet said...

distinguish between
our habits and our nature
they are not the same

robotic movements
repeated incessantly
might feel natural
