Haibun Thinking: Continuity – but not for all!

My entry:

Continuity, such an interesting word. The meaning I refer to is the unbroken and consistent existence or operation of something over a period of time. For the continuity of the human species to exist, so it seems, the continuity of many other life forms cease.

As I look out my window I ponder the continuity in my personal life. It’s a good life, the children have a place to play, to grow, to be safe, even though each year our fields produce less crop and there are less bees to pollinate. My husband oversees our farm while I work in the city for the extra income needed to survive in today’s world.

I worry about the weather too. Thank goodness no tornadoes so far, but the weather seems so unpredictable. So many changes happening so rapidly and not just outside my window, but globally.

As I look out the window one final time, before beginning my commute to work, I ponder again the word continuity and wonder, can our own human “continuity” continue on it’s path without completely destroying itself in the process.

  1. Very well put Penny. Definitely gives pause for thought. Humanity seems to think that for it’s continuity, it needs to destroy the world in the process

Thank you for your thoughts!
