Pink blotched clear blue lake,
now turning a deep green,
Two mosquitoes circling each other
rise in the air
A creature jumps in
leaving ripples dancing
Mink, muskrat or otter
does it matter?
Moments pass by
the geese are still making their calls
Ripples form again
as the breeze sweeps in
Bare trees still shaking off winter
double themselves on water
a deeper reflection
their skeletons the blackest of blacks
No pinks no blues no more;
hints of orange fade
between real and shadow.
Time to break through some illusions. You are not separate from the rest of the world, you are not independent from others and the world does not revolve around you. The Earth wasn’t ‘created’ for our species, we weren’t put here to save the world and woman was not ‘created’ for man. Do I need to elaborate upon these?
The leaves above made me come up with those. It’s actually a summary of everything that those leaves made me think. Well yeah, that’s how my mind works. I had to write something along with picture because I couldn’t find a perfect quote to describe what I felt. This is what I usually do to get away from sharing my own thoughts. Insecurities? Maybe. But here’s a quote that got close:
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
― Albert Einstein
