High Coo – Dec 11 – Love Everything?

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

        I should also have said that there were only 3 characters in the play. Two brothers and their father. Plus a single prop on a bare stage …. a fur coat! The players took it in turns to be the father who always wore the coat. My poor wife who had not read the book was confused beyond despair, we still laugh about it.
