Masaru Emoto, The Hidden Messages in Water

Ernest Hemingway

Katherena Vermette

cocooned in
winter white
I slip beside you
breathe deep

if you listen
you can hear the snow
shift slow to spring
poised for melt

cloaked under
white winter
I lie beside you
breathe out

if you listen
you can hear
wet wings unfurl
like petals
ready to be
Katherena Vermette, river woman

Meša Selimović
“He spoke about cognition.”
“Is that all you know? Don’t you remember anything?”
“I remember the verses he interpreted.”
“Whose verses?”
“I don’t know.”
“Let me hear.”
“Ahriman knows not
The secret of God’s unity.
Ask Asaf, he knows.
Can a sparrow swallow the mouthful of the Anka-bird?
‘Can a single jug take in
The waters of a great sea?’”
“Those are the verses of Ibn Arabi.They say that the perception of God’s wisdom is possible only for the chosen, only for a few.”
“And what remains for us?”
“To comprehend what we can. If a sparrow cannot swallow the mouthful of the Anka-bird, it will still eat as much as it can. You cannot scoop up the whole sea with a jug, but whatever you scoop up is also the sea.”
Meša Selimović, Death and the Dervish
