Time to Think ’bout Freedom

This post is for all who put pen to paper to unfurl their minds in the service of illuminating darkness. A worthy and meritorious offering.
The Blog, Dew on The Grass writers have been thinking about Freedom these past days. Here is a poem that appears in a post published today:

Freedom is the unfurling of the hand of self,
finger by grasping finger

Feathers unfold, flutter, fly
Release into the stillness of an ocean sky

A vastness deep
Ripple upon ripple dissipates into the blue-black,
lit by an eternity of stars and moon

The warmth of coolness
The illumination of the night

I believe this to be the first post on Dew on The Grass. Timely I’d say, to take another look.

  1. Mmm… Stuff to ponder, including Dew on the Grass. Here’s a haiku by Issa (1763 – 1827):

    this world
    is a dewdrop world
    and yet . . . and yet

    Written on the death of his 2-year-old daughter from Smallpox.
