101 Things in 1001 Days: Roots/Connection

Monday, January 29, 2007


This week at One Deep Breath, we are asked to take a closer, more contemplative look at our connection with nature. Here are my connections...

Mother Earth
We take, plunder, grab
Feeding off you hungrily
Till it all runs out
A field of flowers
Small, bright, delicate
Your colours give me pleasure
Soft scents on the breeze

Your first haiku is all too true, sadly. The second one is lovely.

Oh woman, you are so right on with "We take, plunder, grab
Feeding off you hungrily
Till it all runs out"
Well done. And a last bit of sweetness to temper the first.

You said it all, so simply. It is a horrible thing we do to our mother. Here is an interesting article that is more saddening:

Nice ku's.

Two very contrasting haiku's... makes us wonder if there will be any fields of flowers left...

These are both beautiful; the first one, sad but true.

You nailed societies greed in that first line, yet brought us back to nature's beauty. The contrast is a great reminder.

Very thoughtful haikus. The first one is so sad and so true. Very powerful stuff.

Thank you for the hope offered by the second one.

That first haiku is unfortunately frighteningly true.

Nature as our provider, and nature as a source of beauty. Two good view of our mother.
