Under White’s Spell

In the form of a Japanese tanka, 5-7-5-7-7 syllables, not that I’m strict about that.

white snow seemly dead
but contemplate still longer
devoid of thinking
here sentience thrives; ’tis a veil!
servile matter once spirit

    1. ❤️ warms me to see you, EC; always does. Rules, yeah, I know… younger days I was often accused of being structure-less once people got to know me. I think now, it comes down to whether I am self-imposing the rule or something else is. I like some structures now, as containers to pour creativity into. 🙂 thanks for your comment.


  1. The spirit/matter paradox again. So many interesting paradoxes here in this image. I love the way it mimics waves and sand dunes. How white is not white but all shades of gray and blue and lavender. I’ve always been drawn to white-on-white images for some reason.
