Language

For Three Word Wednesday, prompt words focused, pair, vacant. Also submitted to dVerse OpenLinkNight. Short and sweet this week.

Language
I pared
a pair
of pears.
Focused
hocus-pocus,
well-meant
yet
vacant—
for
what does
“I”

imply?

  1. I think therefore i think i think . . .

    minimal to the max

    enough to be something we can still see
    is playful but with a winking eye examining
    something in the distance . . .

    or a bit of fun?

    i'm seeing both
    with two eyes open 🙂

    cheers nico

  2. Thanks Karin–so, if the I is in the parer, does that mean the self is defined by actions? Or is there something else, behind/beyond/under the action, providing its own definition? Now I'm dizzy!!

  3. Thanks Kim, we just can't avoid the I. It looks like the link you left here is a different poem than the one I saw on your blog–I'll take a look in a second to see what else you've come up with!

  4. Thanks Rob, the way words acquire meaning is interesting. Here are three words that sound the same but have different meanings, and we all understand precisely what is meant by them. However, I've yet to hear an adequate explanation of the meaning of I. Whatever I is, I agree–let's not waste it!
