Foundation

‘Space is fathomless
O clouds drifting on winds!’
Said the growing shoot:
'For reaching goals unbound
Dig your feet in ground'

    PD you are not complicated at all. May be my Tanka is. Just think about what the shoot is meaning to say. Couds may look huge but are taken by winds and not allowed to stay in one place. On the contrary shoots can stay and grow to be a big tree in one place because they have roots in the ground. Regards

    Thanks for admiring my Tanka. For real growth strong foundation is needed. Without this any growth is not sustainable. This is what the shoot is telling to the clouds. Have a nice week end.

    Thanks for admiring my Tanka. There is no harm in thoughts drifting on the clouds of imagination. All the poets and philosophers do it. Nevertheless growth without solid foundation invariably proves to be disasterous. Have a nice day.
