Vesentanker

IMG_4417 2
tenker du noen gang på de artene som ikke er oppdaget
tanken på et komplisert vesen
så sammensatt og innviklet
at vi ikke vil ane stort annet
enn konturene av vesenets virkelighet

tenker du noen gang på alt det vi ikke ser
det som lurer under overflaten
venter på at vi i et ørlite øyeblikk
skal være
uoppmerksomme

  1. Jeg tenker på meg selv sånn når jeg leser diktet ditt. At jeg ikke er helt oppdaget enda. Ingen psykiater eller venn eller familie vet helt hvem jeg er, og jeg selv er et barn i en voksenperson. Det er temmelig forvirrende, men også litt vakkert.

  2. I always have to laugh a little when I read in the newspapers a ‘new’ animal has been discovered. The animal isn’t at all new of course, it did excist, perhaps for a long time already. It is new to ús, humans. It raises the question: What is? The things we don’t know about don’t excist for us. We need to give it a name for it to be ‘true’. The unknown is either un-thinkable or a threat. Or… is it an innocent little frog living in South America upon a large leaf in the rain forest, perhaps as big as a droplet of water. She is light blue or soft magenta. Her name is Caminta Aurelia Flor. She has the most beautiful eyes and when she sings the forest holds it’s breath. But we don’t know that because no-one has ever seen her. She is her own secret.

    Shakespeare said: To be or not to be, that’s the question. He was besides a great writer, a keen thinker.

    • Yes, that’s funny! It’s like we «decide» when something exist. Many of these «new animals» they discover are probably older than all of us.

      It’s very fascinating to think about all the creatures that may be out there. The human kind have discovered and studied other living beings for quite a long time, but we still find something new. That must mean that there is a lot more out there.

      That sounds like a beautiful little frog. And it was very beautiful written. «She is her own secret». I will save that phrase 🙂
