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.

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.
