Look Deeply At A Tree

We never look deeply into the quality of a tree;
we never really touch it, feel its solidity, its rough bark,
and hear the sound that is part of the tree.
Not the sound of wind through the leaves,
not the breeze of a morning that flutters the leaves,
but its own sound, the sound of the trunk
and the silent sound of the roots.
~Jiddu Krishnamurti

Life In The Cemetery

Hydrangea

A beautiful, quiet place to contemplate the meaning of life.
Words, symbols, plants, flowers, birds
all add meaning to the place where ones body ends up,
and where life no longer has any meaning at all
except to those who visit there.

Thinking Back

 

What’s done is done,
what’s said is said,
what remains
are echoes
in my head.

Happy September

September Rose

‘Tis the last rose of summer,
Left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone.
