-- Seeing Sea --
One must be quiet in their mind, to see quick,
not focused just on it, like a sudden tic.
Like not considering naught
or you will miss that new thought.
Like trying to capture the sea
then sharing that Ocean with thee.
Far better to take it all in,
then describe all that is within.
I once had some inland people ask of me,
"Can you describe the Ocean and or a Sea"?
They were excited and happy when I took that bet.
Here's what I told them, about something so big and wet.
First you have to see it when it's real easy,
then we can add some weather and make it breezy.
So, here is something very fun, you can try,
put your head in some water up to your eye!
Then add salt, fish and other very strange things,
and you'll understand why, seabirds love their wings.
Plus, if you are shorter, than the waters rim,
you better first, be real smart and learn to swim.
Bye the way, there is still so much more to Sea,
that's why giant ships charge you such a big fee,
and even on that giant vessel which is as long as can be,
it to the Ocean, is like a splinter to a mighty tall tree!
Only the Earth can hold all the Oceans and the Seas,
understanding that concept is just one the keys,
I also need to tell you, it is always in motion,
and that will allow you to imagine a Sea or Ocean.
why thank u Founder...have u ever written any haiku's
try it sometime...there's something very deep and soothing in the brevity
How can I be free
seeing everything I see
that's so unlike me
Quiet is the mind
Cats sleep soundly in the bed
My world is at peace
As for MSG's
"two little" plump kitty cats
I hope they don't drool
One of them snores. I'm not kidding. Loud.
Two big scaredy cats
sleeping the whole day away
dreaming Kiddie thoughts
while their Owners watch
and try to figure out why
they are so very blessed
Now my own blog calls
like a searchlight in the night
a mental klaxon
I bid you adieu
keep writing the great Haiku
be hearing from you...
founder that first one only has 6 syllables in the second line
seeing everything I see..this is the six syllable line
u could add a one syllable word like when
when seeing everything i see
that would make it plumdumptious
oohhhhhhh...A MENTAL KLAXON!!!
