Hidden, oh hidden

in the high fog

the house we live in,

beneath the magnetic rock,

rain-, rainbow-ridden,

where blood-black

bromelias, lichens,

owls, and the lint

of the waterfalls cling,

familiar, unbidden.

In a dim age

of water

the brook sings loud

from a rib cage

of giant fern; vapor

climbs up the thick growth

effortlessly, turns back,

holding them both,

house and rock,

in a private cloud.

At night, on the roof,

blind drops crawl

and the ordinary brown

owl gives us proof

he can count:

five times--always five--

he stamps and takes off

after the fat frogs that,

shrilling for love,

clamber and mount.

House, open house

to the white dew

and the milk-white sunrise

kind to the eyes,

to membership

of silver fish, mouse,


big moths; with a wall

for the mildew's

ignorant map;

darkened and tarnished

by the warm touch

of the warm breath,

maculate, cherished;

rejoice! For a later

era will differ.

(O difference that kills

or intimidates, much

of all our small shadowy

life!) Without water

the great rock will stare

unmagnetized, bare,

no longer wearing

rainbows or rain,

the forgiving air

and the high fog gone;

the owls will move on

and the several

waterfalls shrivel

in the steady sun.

Tina January 17, 2013 I really love your avidce and approach Sohee, if I can ever actually afford to hire a personal trainer, your would be my first choice!Quick question about your 6g of fish oil recommendation, just curious where that comes from. I take about 2g now and taking 4 more of those pills everyday would get a little costly! So I am just curious what the idea behind that amount is.Thanks!! x x

Thanks for your comment, Jeff. You're not being rude at all; that's what this blog is for.I bilveee that if I was in the author's position I would probably bilveee the second story, too. It's not that unreasonable to me that people under that stress would ask the way they did. It's probably more unreasonable that the tiger wouldn't attack the meat living so close at hand. But at the same time neither story is actually impossible, and I think the point of the story is that we recognize the second story is better that it is better to situate suffering within a context of joy, than to have pure cruelty. What little I know of eastern religions is, this evening-out context comes close to how an Indian like Pi would understand God.I think it's important to remember: Pi is not trying to become part of a religion. He's trying to love God. (At least as I read the movie.) So the fact that particular religions condemn cannibalism, I'm not sure how important that is. Pi seems to be comfortable taking what works for him from different religions and casting aside what doesn't. So I think Pi in this situation would say that that Buddhist sailor was basically right: normal ethos like gravy-is-meat only apply in normal conditions. So while they might be good and useful in the normal course of things, I think he'd have little qualms casting it aside here. That's the natural limits of religion not proof his idea of God is wrong.Anyway, thanks for your thoughts! You've given me a lot to think about.
