WEEKEND REFLECTION--reeds

"L’homme n’est qu’un roseau, le plus faible de la nature ; mais c’est un roseau pensant," said Blaise Pascal.  (Man is but a reed, the weakest of nature's creations, but he is a reed that thinks)  By this Pascal meant that man can transcend his weaknesses.

Be that as it may, these reeds stand tall amidst a reflection in the Sava River here in Belgrade.

See other reflections on James' WEEKEND REFLECTION.

Daily Haiku
Reflections floating
Reeds rising from the cold, clear water
 Tall, straight, and proud
  
P.S. Just saw that today is World Water Day---here's your water.

Well, Pascal wasn't always wrong. He was wrong about the "wager," but right about reeds!

Gorgeous photo and the quote is great and your haiku is spot-on!

Pascal a écrit beaucoup de bêtise... ^^

Sinon très belle photo : les motifs formés par le reflet et les roseaux font rêver.

Haiku et image s'assemblent si bien.
Et puis ces quatre "tournicotis/tournicotons" rendent cette image bien originale.
