Haiku Tag

Elevate form over function to get at less easily articulable truths.

A bloody Mary
A bull hanging from rafters
Grooves on grainy stone

Moon crawling through clouds
Stars moving through Indigo
a child's heart murmurs
"It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure."
Joseph Campbell

"In the woods, we return to reason and faith. There I feel nothing can befall me in life, - no disgrace, no calamity, (leaving me my eyes,) which nature cannot repair. Standing on the bare ground, - my head bathed by the blithe air, and uplifted into infinite space, - all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transparent eye-ball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or particle of God."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

"No way of thinking or doing, however ancient, can be trusted without proof. What everybody echoes or in silence passes by as true today may turn out to be falsehood tomorrow, mere smoke of opinion, which some had trusted for a cloud that would sprinkle fertilizing rain on their fields."
Thoreau

I just want to say, for the rest of us, that we will definitely continue this tag, but we are right now dealing with the beauty of that poem.

OR ( as in an alternate reality to choose from)

Recall thuh sawndz

middle east of ware


OR the third choice:




"Moon crawling through clouds
Stars moving through Indigo
a child's heart murmurs"
