I’m a work in progress with no clear finish line in sight. Yet, I aspire to being and doing better.
Below is my latest senryu and the quote that inspired it.
Today’s senryu: Love Everything?
I know I love you
and animals and plants – but –
purists, not so much
“Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to understand it every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love … Things flow and are indirectly linked together, and if you push here, something will move at the other end of the world.” Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov as quoted by Richard Rohr in Immortal Diamond (c) 2013, Jossey-Bass, p.159
