Walking the seasons

of this, our bottomless world

grounded yet.


Collaborating with Jilly on using lines from Jim Harrison’s Songs of Unreason – I’m just going to have to get a copy after this, my interested in his work is piqued to say the least. The quote of Day 16 is: “We walk the bottom of an ocean we call sky”  ~ Jim Harrison

  1. Cool! Bottomless world is so great. Disorienting but absolutely true.

    The conundrum of the quote is strengthened by the puzzle of your words. Love that! Grounded in space…!!!? That blows my mind away! You write so beautifully and responded to Harrison’s line in such a unique way. Thank you for sharing this.

    • Thanks for the inspiration. You have me sold on Harrison. I’ll get his publication(s).

        He wrote the novel Legends of the Fall, which was made into a movie. He also wrote short stories, which I didn’t much care for. His poetry knocks me out!

        • I do think it’s the poetry I’ll go for. Legends of the Fall somehow rings a bell but I know I haven’t read the book, nor did I see the movie. The lines from the poems you’ve chosen as prompts are so beautiful though I definitely want to know the rest of it.

          I’ll be interested in what you think once you read his full poetry. Thanks for joining in!

    A nice mix of haiku tradition and Harrison’s tilted worldview!
