::: things that speak to me...

{transposed garage & garden. diana camera}

"i'm finding my peace. and forgiving myself for those things i've never done."

- willy tea taylor


I look; morning to night I am never done with looking.

Looking I mean not just standing around, but standing around

as though with your arms open.

And thinking: maybe something will come, some

shining coil of wind,

or a few leaves from any old tree—

they are all in this too.
