inherent order

Ligo Haibun Challenge
This week I am attempting the challenge from my phone as there is still a connectivity issue with WordPress. It took a while to cut and paste the link above. God help me with the linkz link ;0

My word is order. Here is the piece

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Once again I stare at the white space in front of me as I consider the prompt for this weeks Ligo Haibun Challenge. As I do so, a switch is thrown, and the writer in me is suddenly ‘ON’. Words tumble towards the whiteness of the WordPress dashboard and stick there as if they are somehow pre-ordained to do so. I wonder if there are other words trying to land, whose presence in my mind is not yet fully formed, and who pass like ghosts through the screen, to echo onward silently towards infinity, perhaps unseen and unheard. Or are there ears to hear them out there beyond all this? Ghost listeners for these future Ghost writers? I can almost sense them now, passing through the spaces that these words here create, to dance their invisible dance into space and time. Is there some kind of mysterious cosmic order at work here? How do I know what to write and what to leave out? In a parallel universe are all my unwritten words written? So, whilst today more words have tumbled from my mind to form a written answer to the prompt, I am more mindful of those that did not find form.Does the formless have its own order?

  1. I like it…very clever. I never use my phone or iPad to post to WP. I do reply/comment from there but to write, I prefer a keyboard.

      • No It is an isp issue but one that only WP can fix…patience is my only option…or the library :-@

      • 😦 I have patience but if forced to do a lot on my phone it would be gone. lol I was just trying to look up this problem and I am more confused. Seems some places people’s ISP is being blacklisted for spam. They advised people to contact their ISP and get a new IP address. For others, just seems like a lot of going around and around with excuses. The majority are in the UK and use Talk Talk? There were a few other ISP mentioned.

      • I can access forums and am with Talk Talk but all other websites work fine and so issue is at WP for sure

      • Going through all the forums, this has been a problem on and off for quite some time. Even back in July. Wp says its ISP problem but then replies they will contact the ISP and fix it.
        This is really crazy. Some of the moderators even come across a bit rude with an absolute answer it is not a WP problem. Ugh….sorry

      • Soon it will be fine. I am away from permanent address. Once home I hope my regular isp is unaffected

      • I hope so. I was on Talk Talks forum and people are complaining there as well. Good luck and maybe its time for an unlplugged weekend 🙂

  2. i’m impressed how well your post form came through with your phone. i tried but after WP crashed so many times on my iPhone, i simply gave up. no patience.
    interesting question you bring up here in your haibun, now i’m wondering too. ☺

    • Thanks…connection bac k now for which I am grateful…good to extend myself and develop phone skills but it was fiddly.Glad to have provoked thought too.

  4. Didn’t realise you were a drummer, got it bit wrong maybe before – you raised a lot of questions in your introspective haibun – makes it a very enjoyable read and opens the mind. If you continue having troubles maybe you could blog from tumblr temporarily. You might lose some readers for a week or so, but gain others. Sounds like it is really a bother.

    • Drummer, drum circle facilitator, photographer…. 😉 I added an about me profile because I changed my theme and lost my old about me page…I’m not sure this theme shows more than one page…I’ll investigate…anyways glad you enjoyed the read and feel free to check the about me links above for more on ‘what I do’
