Animus

An·i·ma, n. 1. soul; life 2. (in the psychology of C.G. Jung) a. the inner personality that is turned toward the unconscious of the individual (in contrast with persona). b. the feminine principle esp. as present in men (contrasted with animus). [L: lit., that which blows (i.e. wind) or is breathed (i.e. air)]


From the breath of my thoughts to the air of your eyes, the anima is the thing. Is it the cause?

An·i·mus,
n. 2. purpose; intention; animating spirit. [L: soul, feeling, spirit, courage, passion, wrath; akin to ANIMA]


A friend gave me a pouch with three giant sequoya seeds in it when I left home.

Metaphor,
n. 1. an idea next to another idea that gives the larger thought its anima, shows us the animus.

Great Big Things are to Such Small Beginnings
as Sequoya Seeds are to _________?
A) Tahitian Pearls
B) Chocolate Truffles
C) Jillian

So, when I write I wonder:
What small beginning begun?
What greater things come forth,
will be expected.
