Behold how this drop of seawater
has taken so many forms and names;

it has existed as mist, cloud, rain, dew, and mud,
then plant, animal, and Perfect man;
and yet it was a drop of water
from which these things appeared.
Even so this universe of reason, soul, heavens, and bodies,
was but a drop of water in its beginning and ending.”

A Drop of Seawater by the Sufi poet Al Shabistari


We’ll return to the dill weed tomorrow.

    Having recently watched (again) The Hobbit: Battle of the 5 armies, that brown thing ?twig reminds me of a wereworm and the droplets are rampaging orcs. Sorry, my mind works in strange ways. Lovely photos.

    Hating to interrupt ….came in for the universe thought and could now gouge my minds eyes out with the the thought of the wereworms
