I saw a crab inside a shell, holding a pebble to its ear; listening to the land.




I currently am tapped into Moby ~ 18

Can I climb into your head and look around? I need a new perspective.

Why not? Now I wonder what he hears? Your "take off" on "holding a shell to the ear to hear the sea" is quite creative!

Very intresting...

First take: funny! Second take: have you read Rumi? Or Idries Shah? You hit pretty close with this one...! MARVELOUS, dahlink!

amazing. outstanding... just...well-done. i always was a fan of the hard-hitting simplicity of those one-line poems that are rarely done as well as this.

your one-liners can really give me a good laugh. =)

Every time I read your philosophy I think... damn! how did he think of that??? I am with Mara Meade... you remind me of Rumi... whirling about this virtual space in your cowboy boots... You are awesome, jadi.

I had forgotten this one Jadi. Took me by surprise. Still hilarious...Charlie

What color is the sky in your world???

This oneliner of yours floated into my vision today and on closing my eyes to listen, mine became a 'sentire' (where sentire is the Italian for: to hear, listen, feel, touch) where I experience the mystery of spiraling sea-shell whirl me to groundedness while 'in contemporanea' am one with sky, wonderfilled being of light breathing light ... 'Sento' I feel, as at home in your words as I do in the universe. Maestro, your words and poetry have walked in me-with me on my path - their essence has guided me like a signpost, to the me I am ... gratitudefilled *m.a

notes: I said 'have walked' ... and yet they 'walk' ... for they speak and fill me with the familiar, the timelessness and the new ...

This is where I need to camp out a while. Jadi's library. Jill's post sent me here from the forum. Sigh. I guess the forum is worth putting up with if it points you to treasures like this. Wonderful is by far not a good enough adjective for this short JDism. Love it!

I'm glad a link to this was in one of the forum threads. This is terrific.

Very cool.
