good photo.but the caption makes me wonder about other life forms and what we know about them and their brain activities in particular...
I agree with Polona.There's a famous poem by Wallace Stevens called the Snow Man - a deeply profound poem - about the one "who nothing himself, beholdsNothing that is not there and the nothing that is." One must have a mind of winterTo regard the frost and the boughsOf the pine-trees crusted with snow;And have been cold a long timeTo behold the junipers shagged with ice,The spruces rough in the distant glitterOf the January sun; and not to thinkOf any misery in the sound of the wind,In the sound of a few leaves,Which is the sound of the landFull of the same windThat is blowing in the same bare placeFor the listener, who listens in the snow,And, nothing himself, beholdsNothing that is not there and the nothing that is.
Good photo, Dalloway :)But I am so stuck by the poem upinVermont quoted...been to see his blog -- his profile isn't showing....anyways, thanks a lot, Patrick for quoting it :)wishes, devika
ah Patrick - a poem for every occasion.as I mentioned in the haibun comments I spent many hours getting into the mind of the bee to get a half way decent shot. Id put money on the fact that that bee was only thinking: THAT FLOWER
Yes, the photograph is amazing.bee of twominds - distracted by Dalloway'ssingle purpose;-)
Patrick, I almost coughed up a burrito laughing too hard just then.
Thanks for taking the time to write something.
