a leaf in the water
that shapes the rock

in the present
facing the future
honoring the past

Overheard

the flowers whispered
life needn’t be solved
it just  –  must  –  be lived

Leaves Surrender


the first surrender is to color
the second is to be untethered by the wind
and the final surrender is to perish in form and replenish the earth

Impermanence


The sky is my teacher
offering lessons in
fleeting, ephemeral, perfection.

The View from Heaven


Nature will keep the pond’s promise that the world will green itself in Spring.
Things may appear upside-down, but everything is as it should be.
