We can only see
A fragment of what’s perceived

Yes, and maybe it’s necessary, I mean this “partial blindness” is the way or the mean that allows us to LEARN – and later, to be amazed… great photo & text as always 🙂

Life mysteriously hidden, right in front of us… 🙂
That got me to thinking (no easy task). Great Haiku.
I take that as a very fine compliment, may I?
Thank you. 🙂
You may LOL
Beautiful, Hanne. I mirror what Frederic says. In order to ‘see’ we have to first know we are blind… 🙂
I so agree with you both, blind is another way of ‘seeing’ with fresh and open eyes…
An iceberg is the perfect symbol for your statement! I had the experience of briefly stopping in a park I often drive through to take pics of the fall leaves. All of a sudden I see a fruit on the ground and realize I am parked under a wild persimmon tree that is laden with fruit! This was the first time I’ve ever seen that tree and its fruit in the wild. This made me wonder what else is there that I’ve never seen because I didn’t know, didn’t expect, didn’t look…and of course that generalizes to the rest of my (and our) lives. Well captured, Hanne.
Annette, thank you so much for this great insightful comment! Nature can show us so much and since we are nature too, it is for me full of powerful parallels pointing towards a way of ‘understanding’ our existence and the mystery it harbors…
I always enjoy coming across Nature’s metaphors – usually at just the right time, at the right dosage – perfect medicine for the mind&spirit!
I couldn’t agree more! 🙂
Beutiful text and the photo too…… 😀
Always thanks for your visit!! 🙂
Agreed (and I guess that’s why I called my ‘Fragments’ fragments).
I’m always curious about the question; what is reality? Each have their own, sometimes they melt into one reality, yet still only a fragment. A word I like a lot for some reason. Yes, I can see your point re ‘Fragments’.
