eight sides open

haiku: watchful dragonfly, sits calmly upon a reed, open on eight sides

An expression piece from my ITP GLBM7600 Intro to Transpersonal Theory class. I thought of it again yesterday while in another class. BTW, ‘eight sides open’ refers to a state of panoramic awareness. Though eight sides open has been described in many cultures, I draw upon the tradition of Musashi. The dragonfly shows utter equanimity and absolute awareness.
