forever finely tuned

If only we could see the endless

string of consequences that result

from our smallest actions.

But we can’t know better

until knowing better

is useless.

~John Green

finding place….

inquiry for today~ core values help us listen more deeply….

troubles ease here

After all, there’s no need

to say anything

at first. An orange, peeled

and quartered, flares

like a tulip on a wedgewood plate

Anything can happen.

Outside the sun

has rolled up her rugs

and night strewn salt

across the sky. My heart

is humming a tune

I haven’t heard in years!

Quiet’s cool flesh—

let’s sniff and eat it.

There are ways

to make of the moment

a topiary

so the pleasure’s in

walking through.

~Rita Dove
