Think of these as small gifts for a lovely Sunday morning.

without a thought
the neighbor’s back yard
turns green
—William Higginson

from which tree’s blossom
it comes, I do not know
this fragrance

in the woodpile
the groundhog’s eyes
—Joe Nutt

by firelight
listening to the silence
of things we can’t see
—Larry Gross

watering the beans
in the cool of the evening
a fiery sun
—Jim Norton

the earth shakes
just enough
to remind us
—Steve Sanfield

the whole yard quiet—
the cool sound of rain
on rhubarb leaves
—H.F. Noyes

quiet country road
dusty sweetness
of ripe raspberries
—Jean Jorgensen

The quote I live by

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
