Detail - curves

A peek at some of the detail in my world... where I live to be more specific -
trying not to take the beauty of the every day for granted. Everywhere we look there is beauty - if we pay attention...

February 20, 2006 - it has been one year since the accident.

She got out of bed
on two strong legs.
It might have been
otherwise. She ate
cereal, sweet
milk, ripe, flawless
peach. It might
have been otherwise.
She took the dog uphill
to the birch wood.
All morning she did
the work she loves.

At noon she lay down
with her mate. It might
have been otherwise.
They ate dinner together
at a table with silver
candlesticks. It might
have been otherwise.
She slept in a bed
In a room with paintings
on the walls, and
planned another day
just like this day...

we are thankful
it is not otherwise.

based on a poem by
Jane Kenyon


...Early ...

What the Bird said Early in the Year

I heard in Addisons's Walk a bird sing clear
'This year the summer will come true. This year. This year.

'Winds will not strip the blossom from the apple trees
This year, nor want of rain destroy the peas.

'This year time's nature will no more defeat you,
Nor all the promised moments in their passing cheat you.

'This time they will not lead you round and back
To Autumn, one year older, by the well-worn track.

'This year, this year, as all these flowers foretell,
We shall escape the circle and undo the spell.

'Often deceived, yet open once again your heart,
Quick, quick, quick, quick! -the gates are drawn apart.'

C.S. Lewis


Happy Valentines Day

The world stands out
on either side, no
wider than the heart
is wide

Above the world is
stretched the sky,
no higher than the
soul is high.

Edna St.Vincent Millay



The Grass so little has to do...
