Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Symphony of Old and New

on June 22, 2016

The cooling AC softly whirs
New day’s light shining through the trees
Creates a lacy pattern on warm brick wall
Outside my window.

Flame of small red candle flickers
Smell and taste of coffee steaming
Tick of clock hanging on the wall
Companions to begin my morning.

Every day for many years it has been so
Today there’s something new.
Leaf of philodendron on the table by my side
Has on its tip one crystal water drop.
