FACES (OSI)



Haiku (after Nietzsche)

I gazed long into
deep water, then deep water
gazed back into me

This is wonderful and very zen.

I wanted to let you know that your link at Mr. Linky wouldn't work for me and I couldn't get to you by clicking on your name from your commet at my post either. I finally tried googling you and that's how I got here. Another cyber mystery.

This is a lovely haiku and photo.

Thank you for your comments, and also for making me aware of the goof (typo) in my URL! I just went back Mr. Linky and re-entered my name.

I agree with Raven. Your poem is "very Zen", and speaks to me. Very beautiful poem and picture!

Use of the word "into" has so much more impact than the conventional "at". Very nice.

Not only poetic, but phiosophical.
Memoriable.
Thank you.

Our faces are found everywhere. I have always been fascinated with water as a mirror. Nicely done.

Still waters run deep and are often unfathomable. Lovely.

Thanks.

I would agree that this is about as complete as it can be. I love the simplicity and the depth, which seem to be: Two faces of the same poem....

tumblewords said...

Oh, yes...the words and photo are lovely!

Finally got this to open, using the link on the reply mail. Now I see the other one is fixed!

I am to the age when my reflection looks better a little bit rippled. Good poem.

Great response to the prompt. It sent me off to my record collection to listen to Joe Walsh - "The Confessor".

Deep thoughts in that deep water. I participate in OSI also. Well done and Welcome!
