The Zen of Koi
"He who seeks does not find, but he who does not seek will be found." - Franz Kafka
Sojourners visit Koi ponds in search of inner serenity in mind and heart. To me it is more like a mirror, reflecting our inner truths to those who have earned it.
Sometimes we will be in the company of friends, sometimes we will be alone. Sometimes we will see the whole, sometimes mere parts. Sometimes we will struggle against stability. Sometimes we sit in silence and happen upon inspiration.
These are the feelings when I visit the Koi pond and have been reproduced in this set of images. What do you feel?
