Like the question at the end! Good stuff.
Thank you, Mike, and so pleased your blogs are taking off 🙂
Cheers – thing is its killing me. Never did like hard work! Must say your current form of poetry (forget the word for it) is sublime. Each one even better than its predecessor!
Hmm. I’ve heard say that blogs can take over one’s life! Make sure you let yourself off the leash soon, Mike. Maybe try some comic haiku… it wouldn’t take up much time either 🙂
Looking at the stuff both you and Mr Lenzi write I genuinely do not believe I could get close. Thanks for the thought though – I will soon/about now’ish take a short break, albeit an enforced one as my son is close to finishing his degree and keeps kicking Shirley and I out the house for extended periods as he chooses to record his music in his home studio and insists we make too much noise! Bloody cheek of it.
Oh I love this Rachael…..there is something so intriguing about rocks which have stood still so long they get coated in moss 🙂
Isn’t it! I love that shift of consciousness when in a place where nature is the most powerful force. Happy times 🙂
Beautiful! Merci pour cet instant de contemplation!
Thank you so much. Your appreciation makes my day brighter 🙂
Perhaps because we have lost the ability to truly listen, Rachael. Lovely writing!
Thank you. I know it’s hard to comment on haiku sometimes – but every time you do it’s really appreciated!
You are very welcome!
They do look like they certainly have stories to tell! The question seems to indicate a disconnect between the narrator and nature. I think it’s a common feeling for many of us.
Spot on, Miranda. I was trying to show our alienation from the natural world by this ‘deafness’, and how it might detract from our happiness. Thank you!
