Clarity


My Own World

Scientists try to understand the universe
but I,
not being a scientist in the least,
try only to understand
my own microcosm within it.
And that just makes sense --
In simplicity and smallness,
clarity is found.


Mother of Invention, keeping it simple.

...and understanding that's hard enough, isn't it!

But, if you're a scientist, looking at the simple and small, you find there's something simpler and smaller, and then... oh, the box within the box thing...

Definately need those times to keep it simple

Lovely words! Reminds me of William Blake saying "...to see a world in a grain of sand..."

I enjoyed how your poem about clarity was clear and simple. The poem itself symbolizes what it says. Nice!

Annelisa: Yes, a different perspective again from The Russian Doll Scientist! I've been simplifying my life lately by cleaning out drawers, my attic etc.! Seemed fitting.

Nancy: Thanks for the visit and kind words! Your 2 blogs are very impressive! I really enjoyed them.
And I guess you could say,"and to see the grain of sand in the world"!!!

Brooksba: Thanks, Beth! Exactly...you always get what I mean to say on multi-levels.

What a beautiful thought. I imagine the clarity of the simple and small opening the wider world to your heart and understanding. After all, we are all people with the same basic needs.

This goes so nicely with Pauline's post today, which also talks about simplifying one's life. The universe is far too big a place to search for the things that really matter.

Maggie: Thanks and you can well imagine how I sort of use a funnel, the smallest part is in my heart/mind and it opens up from there but very slowly, and sometimes I don't look out at the huge world. Sometimes, I am better to be a small ant in the big colony!

Barbara: You are so right. You can get lost searching! I've checked out Pauline's site yesterday and today, and it's great! A grade 2 teacher too! Thanks!

It probably won't surprise you that I am one of those who wants to know it all. I personally believe that everything is knowable.

Thanks for the poem, Mother. The world is amazing regardless of how much or how little we understand.

Richard: Nope! And I know you have a lot of knowledge and crave more. I sometimes get lost in the bigger picture, then try to search for myself in it,it's elusive so I try to pare down everything into simple terms so I don't get overwhelmed.

Stephen: Yes it is. And sometimes we try to make sense of it, and at other times, we just want to sit back and marvel at it!
