"I part the out thrusting branches
and come in beneath
the blessed and the blessing trees.
Though I am silent
there is singing around me.
Though I am dark
there is vision around me.
Though I am heavy
there is flight around me."
~Wendell Berry

and next to true wonder......bless you for this rich condensed essence today. a week of words and images, in short rich form is feast enough for me. these days i get by on little sustenance. and must suck the marrow from what i find upon my trail.

slj,
Wendell Berry is probably my favorite living poet, farmer, seer. And not many know of Mary Oliver it seems...oh how I wish to some day bring "it" like she does. Thanks for the comment...(is this Sarah's man?!)

(and miss bam, the marrow sometimes is all there is to sustain us...thank goodness, at least it's something of enough...)
