A description of what started this particular blog can be found in its first entry --Feb. 9, 2009. It's about healing.
I am forever learning from you. Yes, I had to look up ampliative induction. There's more shame in NOT looking up something you don't know I believe.
Dear Delores, you'll doubtless recognize ampliative induction as a staple device in haiku. I've never mastered it but sure admire those poets who do.
"Nothing is still." I really like that - and its position in your verse.Another gem by a gem.Thanks, Geo.
Kind Robyn, from the dance of Shiva to the entropic arrow of time --the degree of disorder in all systems will continue to cause change. I suspect it's why the universe created minds. Something's got to make sense of it --or, in my case, nonsense, or both. Dear lady, I believe we have a dance.
I don't know, Geo. It looks like a picket fence, musty leaves and growy things. What am I missing? --Sven
It's been five days since you posted this and my brain is still going "zzzzzttt" from having shorted out trying to google "ampliative induction" . . . between our internet problem and the fact that I kept googling reduction instead of induction, it was tough slogging :)ANYWAY. I still like your poem.
Jenny, thanks for your efforts, and for liking my poem. I imagine reduction could include induction if we...uh-oh, where's that zzzzzttt-sound coming from? I think I'll go lie down now.
"Nothing is still"... I love that!It is so true of life, isn't it?A gorgeous picture too... really fills me with anticipation of the approach of spring!Thank you so much! ☺☺
Thank YOU, Ygraine. In navigating our plenum, nothing remains still --especially our minds as we dream.
