next

i am incredibly ignorant
each next season lies like an impossibility beyond the door
imposibility, see?
and so when it comes
i am shocked
and humbled

we got a foot of snow yesterday, at least that much more to come today
to think of a violet breaking ground!

oh, the tenaciousness of life!

  1. is this ignorance? is it not wisdom, is it not a kind of presence? to be that shocked, to be that humbled?

    each next season is absent, yes? we're looking to be present.

    this picture speaks to me , the child i am. may i chase butterflies outback, may i?

    a foot of snow. we had rain yesterday, to help with the melting. today was sunny. i took some pictures. maybe i'll show you one or two.
