Yesterday I was at Clinton Lake with my camera but didn't get a whole lot of shots-wrong lens for the conditions. But this little bloom in the sun caught my eye:
leading to this line:
"The humblest flowers have their moment in the light even if no one is watching."
Copy and paste the link:
Well no, in fact it probably doesn't matter whether we are around to hear the humble hum of the bumbling humble bee.
That said I can still enjoy Emerson: in a non anthropomorphic way, of course:
BURLY, dozing humble-bee,
Where thou art is clime for me.
Let them sail for Porto Rique,
Far-off heats through seas to seek;
I will follow thee alone,
Thou animated torrid-zone!
Zigzag steerer, desert cheerer,
Let me chase thy waving lines;
Keep me nearer, me thy hearer,
Singing over shrubs and vines.
The complete poem is at:
And the "humble" bumblebee...
if it buzzes whilst no one is about
can it be said to hum humbly?
Anthropomorphic...the hazards of responding via cell phone.
Actually Tange, this is a dig at the notion that there is something special about human observers...really I am being antianthromorphic.
Paul, your anthropomorphism is leaking.
