Where Up Meets Down

In a place
where up meets down
above and below…
Look down into up and see!
Leaves float in water
hanging on trees overhead,
connected by reflections
drifting in-between
clouds that dance through lily pads.   ~ms

    I had this page saved some time before but my PC crashed. I have since gotten a new one and it took me a while to come across this! I also in fact like the design though.

    Reminds me of Monet…and the words…where up meets down of some sage:).


  4. Thanks for comparing me to a sage.
    It is true that most sages seemed to talk in cryptic circles and riddles.
    There is no such thing as up or down, unless you are in the middle.
    We all have to be a little self-centered or risk becoming lost in space without direction!

    You brought us to that place, and thus you completed the purpose of the poet… 🙂


    • And obviously what was is also now, as past and present suddenly collide.
      You wrote your comment at the end of November and I do not see it until July 1st?
      Well…hmmm. The old just became new again.
      Thank you so much for the compliment then and now! 🙂

    very beautiful

    something spiritual about it, I dont know something mysterious


    • Space, time, and distance are definitely mysterious.
      Up and down are determined by where you think you are.
      What appears to be ‘up’ to one person, may be ‘down’ from another point of view.
      Truth is, without a center reference point, there is no up and down.
      Which is why we have to be self-centered (to some extent) to navigate safely through this physical world.
