Poetry Wednesday--Muso Soseki

The sky and the water
are a single
deepening blue
~ Muso Soseki (Japan, 14th cent)

I knew I had to use this poem for Poetry Wednesday when I read it on Poetry Chaikhana. The sparse but full imagery immediately brings to mind a gorgeous blue that stretches out to infinity.

This is gorgeous. I've seen this before at the ocean and such. It does feel like infinity right without our view.

Glad you liked it!

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
