Try the blur


How much time
is wasted
in the struggle
to focus
the sharp pointed
search
for clarity

weariness falls
a heavy weight
that smothers

how much energy
consumed
in the finding of details
when perhaps
the greater beauty
is most obvious
in the blur

That blur -- I've seen it, too. And it's often where you find the beauty. It's the sorting of that blur that's the challenge. Good poem.

but to let go the details...gasp...who would be in control then....smiles. there is much beauty in the blur...

How often we pray for clarity in decision making when Christ wants us to trust Him in the chaos, confusion and blurry choices we have. What is faith/trust if everything is a perfectly clear choice? For we walk by faith, not by sight. Such a good reminder... thank you.

Fine composition... creates an excellent aesthetic reminder of the beauty of impressions.

Yes that blur
Can ruffle ones fur
But it can also be neat
And help you move to a different beat
Great poem
Here where you roam

beauty
is in the blur
of flowers
purple they
stir me

The experience of the moment is all - exact rightness is for another time. important issues raised by the poem

"when perhaps the greater beauty is most obvious in the blur". yes, others have already pointed out how beautiful that line is, but i just had to say how much i love that idea, too. we can be a little OCD in that respect, always over-examining, when sometimes we just need to let it go and enjoy!
thanks for the beautiful thoughts this day.
