I knew that posting consistently every day would not, could not last forever. I made it to 101 days of posting at least one thing each day, but yesterday and the day before were silent on Quest4Peas. I am going to try to be fairly consistent, but I also don’t want to burn myself out by striving for unattainable goals. Having a couple days off has been good.
I have started reading “Four Quartets” by T.S.Eliot…as it comes highly recommended by the professor of the Intro to Poetry class that I took back in ’95. I have to admit, I am not understanding it at all. I plan on finishing reading through the whole thing, and then trying to re-read it with some “cheat notes”…and hopefully learn a bit. Writing poetry, and intuitively understanding poetry are, apparently two different things.
Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.
-T.S.Eliot, Burnt Norton (Four Quartets)
Sure, perhaps I don’t understand it…yet…but the language is beautiful, and I look forward to delving deeper.
in seeking to grasp
in time present or future –
Not sure…I think that the above might qualify as a haibun…
