Haiku: Treasures

a black whippet on the beach sniffing the seaweed

breath of light
treasures in the sand

      1. I have recently had an idea of painting a trail looking down from above at the rocks and each rock — or some of them — would show its origins. A chunk of lava would be a small painting of a volcano, a bit of limestone would show the seashells on the beach, a bit of sandstone with a dendrite or small plant fossil would be a soft stream lined by ferns — I haven’t figured it out yet but since I sprained my foot on a half buried rock on a grass-covered trail I’ve had the feeling they were trying to tell me something in addition to “Watch where you’re going.” πŸ™‚ ❀

  1. Smiles Xenia it’s true i am not decades older
    than you but i wanted to gift you with this thought
    as i have with a couple of other Bloggers i truly treasure
    who enhance the depth and colors of my Soul in SPiRiT oF HeART too…
    a bit late visiting this week but looking forward to catching up more..:)

    3246 days true i am a whole lot older than
    You a few more decades to check-in this many
    Consecutive Days to Sing a Deeper SonG of mY
    SoUL than the Ordinary Circumstances of Life Allow..
    i remember visiting my Psychiatrist first in 2008.. really
    terrified as i knew there was something very different about
    me but i did know it had
    labels like Autism
    more specifically
    Asperger’s Syndrome
    And Bi-Polar too really
    though both conditions
    really do balance out
    great as long as there
    is not too much stress in the Environment
    at Dark play as you say ‘Grey and Dark Thought Bubbles’
    a really appropriate metaphor for Existential Angst in Ruminations
    About Life.. Anyway then before Blogging became so Popular as it is
    today.. that Psychiatrist said a big concern is two things.. People no longer
    have time much for introspection more than a drive to work and he wondered
    if Human Beings would totally lose their ability to speak with each other as that
    was only when the texting revolution had its very start.. Honestly as Science Shows
    People are losing the space in Life to make Intimate Friends to fully express their truths
    to.. even at best without all this technology humans with that ‘Dunbar Number’ of 150
    Acquaintances at max and having the Social Capacity to make five close friends.. as
    Science Bears this truth out now by Americans who haven’t made a new close friend
    like this on average of 5 years now.. a best thing about Blogging is not only
    will we speak to our Soul like a Diary does but in this fast paced World
    others will learn from the Dark and Light of our Experiences when
    Reality lends little to no time to learn this way from close
    and intimate friends.. truly it is so beneficial this way
    to open up the Windows of our Souls now as we may
    care to do in Blogging and share that much of the
    Light thru Darkness hehe.. sure now
    BLacK Abyss through beyond Colors
    of Rainbow Bliss too.. the ancient
    Egyptians Described the Human
    Chi of Fearless Love Spirit Force
    in Positivity by the Term Ka… other terms
    include Chi and Prana too.. Egyptians were
    misinformed though to think they could transcend
    Mortality by building Pyramids with other Artisan
    Depictions of their Names and Physical Likenesses
    so inscribed for that was only the Shell of their KA not
    the Nautilus Creating that lives in that Spiraling PHI Ratio
    Shell existing 300 MiLLioN Years but just a Shell of the
    KA and CHI and Prana of the Spirit of the Nautilus that
    Creates that fossilized Soul.. but only shell of soul.. wow
    Human Beings have so many opportunities to extend the
    Force of their KA to others beyond normal Social Capacities
    both Living and Dead now.. truly transcending what we are born
    with using Technology As Musical instruments transcend the Limitations
    of our Vocal Chords to Lift our Emotions Up with Drums that beat so much
    Harder than our Heart Beats too.. i will never be a close and intimate friend but
    in a way you give something similar to everyone who crosses your page what you
    never could do without the dressing of technology too.. i see you as Human i like that
    now and even
    the greatest
    among us
    deserve
    a bit
    of
    encouragement
    with ‘grey dark thought bubbles come’..
    A Zen of Compassion a Storm of Humanity…
    Truly the Blogging experience will be when Authentic and Real…
    With that said thank you i enjoy coming by here each day reading about
    another Human Being’s Soul as i do every where i go.. each instance i
    do my Soul becomes a bit more Colorful with so many Souls i continue to
    consume and Nourish the Light in me to spread a bit more too.. Have a nice day…

    Keep up the Great Work!

    -Just Another Blogger And A Human too-
