I Saw A Hummingbird As Big As The Sky   1 comment

I saw a Peacock, with a fiery tail,
I saw a Blazing Comet, drop down hail,
I saw a Cloud, with Ivy circled round,
I saw a sturdy Oak, creep on the ground,
I saw a Ant swallow up a Whale,
I saw a raging Sea, brim full of Ale,
I saw a Venice Glass, Sixteen foot deep,
I saw a well, full of mens tears that weep,
I saw their eyes, all in a flame of fire,
I saw a House, as big as the Moon and higher,
I saw the Sun, even in the midst of night,
I saw the man, that saw this wondrous sight.

“Work while it is called today,
for you know not how much you
may be hindered tomorrow.

One today is worth two tomorrows,
never leave that til tomorrow
which you can do today.”

— Benjamin Franklin

Mt. Meant-To

Mr. Meant-To has a comrade,
And his name is Didn’t-do;
Have you ever chanced to meet them?
Did they ever call on you?

These two fellows live together
In the house of Never-win,
And I’m told that it is haunted,
By the ghost of Might-have-been.

“There is only one world,
the world pressing against
you
at this minute.
There is only one minute
in which you are alive,
this minute here and now.
The only way to live
is by accepting each minute
as an unrepeatable miracle.”

Kindness to Animals

 

Little children, never give
Pain to things that feel and live:
Let the gentle robin come
For the crumbs you save at home,—
As his meat you throw along
He’ll repay you with a song;
Never hurt the timid hare
Peeping from her green grass lair,
Let her come and sport and play
On the lawn at close of day;
The little lark goes soaring high.
To the bright windows of the sky,
Singing as if ’twere always spring,
And fluttering on an untired wing,—
Oh! let him sing his happy song,
Nor do these gentle creatures wrong.

When is a Tree Not a Tree?   2 comments

Wave Tree (1 of 1) B&W blogVermilion Cliffs National Monument In Northern Arizona — Image by kenne

Take a leaf off a tree. Is it still a tree?
Take a sin­gle twig off a tree. Is it still a tree?
Remove an entire branch from a tree. Is it still a tree?
Take off half of the branches. Is it still a tree?
Cut down the whole tree, leav­ing only the stump. Is it still a tree?
Many peo­ple would say no, it is no longer a tree,
though the roots may still be in the ground.
Well, where did the tree go?
Removing a leaf, it remains a tree,
but not by remov­ing all of the branches and the trunk?

In the real world, there aren’t any things as we com­monly think of them.
A ‘thing’ as we refer to it is only a noun. A noun is merely an idea, a men­tal con­struct.
These ‘things’ exist only in our minds. There is no tree, there is only the idea of a tree.
