Huh, there I am concrete again.Are we any more or less advanced?Time to dress up I guess....
Birds do it...why not hominids?
Hi Dave,The male of the species has always been something of a peacock!
I heard about the findings in Spain. Remarkable!
p.s.I have received my comments back time after time. I'm glad this posted here today!
I'd add something about a prescience of near extinction, but that's just me.
Can I use the excuse that I am worth it in order to adorn myself with jewels, do you think Dave? I am enjoying your haiku.
I have asked some students of mine to look for Haikus on the internet after a lesson on Haikus in English.I hope they will find yours, especially this latest n.13.I have explained to them in English, in a low voice, what a "fart" is...anyway in English the word sounds nobler than in Italian... as a traslation I also quoted from Dante:" e col cul fece trombetta"!
Your brevity outshines your longer work - or perhaps I'm too shallow to follow the more thorough expositions...Aloha, Friend!Comfort Spiral
Like Lakeview, I just read about the Murcia Neanderthals who used painted shells -- that they could think themselves worthy of decoration is a new idea to the anthropologists -- perhaps you are a head of them in understanding the badly berated Neanderthal. Reading these comments has the added delight of Tomaso's revelation in Italian -- what a great phrase!
perhaps the jewels were deflections rather than reflections of their vanity. steven
Like the poem. I thought Haiku was 5-7-5. Is there another form out there I am not aware of?
That second line makes this a gem, itself!
This is fun. I'm not a man, but I'm worth it. :]
What a fascinating perspective. The origins of narcissism of sorts, but a healthy narcissism at that. Thanks, Dave.
and why not?!
Dianne Depends from where you are advancing, I guess.Tabor Could be said of lots of things...Derrick Hey, that's us of whom you're speaking!lakeviewer Sorry about that. Grateful for your persistence, though. I will try again to uncover the problem. (In the meantime I have lost my "Followers"! WHat is going on?Conda MMMM, that's just you giving us nightmares!Weaver I don't just think, I know - you are definitely worth it. After all, you adorn my blog with jewels.Tommaso Actually, I quite like the Italian. Incidentally, I am about to post on what is and what is not a Haiku - as I see it!Cloudia Of course it outshines it. In the longer works I expose my shallowness! Thanks again.June I've always had a soft spot for ye olde Neanderthal - having often been called one, myself. Many thanks for the comment.steven Good thinking! Like it!readingsully2 Explanation - as I see it - coming up any time soon. Hope it will help.Karen Truth, you see. Will out.Tara Absolutely! Those eight words make the point.Elisabeth Healthy narcissism - Mmm, I think I shall try to cultivate some of that for myself!Shadow ... indeed!
I like this one. Think about it often...or variations.x
