Simple

Simple

A Chapter by Wondering Mind
"

from a simple mind

"

awareness

has seldom slumbered
to acquaintance

of simple things

 

often, still

I stop

 

and wonder
in awe
at the ways of ants

Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise. Without having any chief, officer, or ruler, she prepares her bread in summer and gathers her food in harvest.

I thought of this Verse, when reading your Poem .. Way Cool !!

i wonder too at the organization and diligence of ants. as though there is a collective mind at work. it is amazing how even the minutest things we don't pay attention to have intelligence. are you familiar with the borg?

I've always wanted an ant farm but I was always to afraid it would break and I would have to spray my pets :(

wow, loved the degree of depth and analysis that is a natural contemplation
set to a still moment, the bigger the outlook the smaller person becomes.
wisely envisioned and artistically expressed, I enjoyed this very much

I wrote a poem about Ants once on a different site, fascinating creatures they are.

Simple & brilliant ! Aesop Fables come to mind.. Did you know they herd aphids like cows.. it's an interesting relationship between them...

When it comes to human beings (or any higher beings there may be) the virtue of ants probably resides in the eye of the beholder.
It seems to me that ants just do--what they have been created to do, or what the survival instinct urges them to do.
We, the observing, more exalted consciousness often attribute to these tiny limited creatures qualities requiring individual choice; choice they are not likely to possess.
Finally, I suppose, WM, the method of delivery does not much change the outcome--or that "Simple" is a clever, perceptive bit of work, and hardly the product of "a simple mind."

Fine piece of writing, a look at the things most of us don`t look at - you have the eyes of a poet.

It is the simple things that we may overlook... if we pay attention there may be something awe inspiring in the smallest of life's wonders.
