YOU ARE SO NEAR-BY
YET SO FAR AWAY
WHERE IS OUR ONE-NESS?
Part of the instructions regarding SoCS is to write without preplanning. I’m not sure whether this is exactly preplanned. Before bedtime last night I read Linda’s suggestion of words to use “far” and “near.” This morning when I awoke the haiku written above was in my mind. Is that preplanned?
I have past relationship with friends that one could describe as have had a “one-ness” with that no longer remain at that level of friendship. I am fortunate to not have experienced a loss of other “one-ness” relationships. With whom do you have a “one-ness?” Spouse? Lord? Sibling? Friend? Parent?
Thank you, Linda, for the thought of the day. https://lindaghill.com/2021/09/24/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-sept-25-2021/
About oneta hayes
Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
Nice haiku. I like these and this one makes a person think. 🙂
I am reading a novel in which the wife is feeling that her husband is so far away even when they are near. Sad. I guess that is the reason for my emotional “far/near” topic. Also I think many people feel like that about the Lord. They know he is as near as their breath but do not “feel” his nearness. Thanks for the comment.
To have one-ness with someone is a gift. Very nice take on the prompt.
Yes, it is. A place where conflict can be resolved.
