carried from home to school
clutched in chubby hand
tiny simple gift
brings precious beauty
to a teacher’s heart.
“sometimes, said pooh, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”

“that we find a crystal or a poppy beautiful means that we are less alone,
that we are more deeply inserted into existence than the course of a single life would lead us to believe.”

in honor of national dandelion day
(the bees will be busy celebrating)
“dandelions don’t tell no lies…”

and my rose
“the rose is without an explanation; she blooms, because she blooms.”
the peony tree is back in full bloom
today we found a beautiful flower that survived
under the snow and ice and rain and arctic temperatures of january.
were very surprised.
it must be enchanted.
“the only words that ever satisfied me as describing nature
are the terms used in fairy books, charm, spell, enchantment.
they express the arbitrariness of the fact and its mystery.”
