I really just want
to be warm yellow light
over everyone I love.

I think I will do nothing for a long time but
And accrue what I hear into myself…. and let
sound contribute toward me.

There is a voice
that doesn’t use words.
The first step of peace
is to stand still in the light.

but large and melodious thoughts descend upon me?

The dream of my life
Is to lie down by a slow river
And stare at the light in the trees-
To learn something by being nothing
A little while but the rich
Lens of attention.

There are hearts to be found in quiet places… Here are a few I’ve photographed recently.
A lilac heart.
A sweet woodruff heart.
A yarrow heart.
I think passing love around
Is all we were born to do.
May your day be touched by love.

Twinkling like the morning star along a quiet trail near our home, a bloodroot unfurls delicate petals…
As I was scrolling through my photo archives this morning, this image called to mind a simple line of poetry I whisper to myself each year. I’m posting it here to celebrate the joyous arrival of the vernal equinox. xo
Nothing is so beautiful as Spring —
