More Beauty

These are some of the wonders in my yard, That gave rise yesterday to my teary sense that the beauty that surrounds me is so strong that feel I could burst. Not that it's all about flowers - not at all. It's about the vibrancy of life, its fragility, its impermanence. But, this place....

  6. Hi Jennifer: Thank you so much for the columbine photograph. Those flowers inspire me every time I see them; they've been a favorite since childhood. In fact, tonight I found one on the university campus near my house, and it was so beautiful I PICKED IT--a public flower, and I stole one--something I haven't done since I was very young. I think I really needed that beautiful flower.
