Faces

April 1 2014 garden 078

Faces,

Interfaces,

Spaces for comings

And goings.

 

 March 27, 2014 parkway 040

 

Open or shy,

Averted,

 

April 1 2014 garden 091

Concentrated,

Concerned,

Observant,

Sans le savoir;

 

March 27, 2014 parkway 072

 

All speak.

With or without words,

With or without breath;

 

 April 1 2014 garden 013

 

All invite.

With or without eyes,

The invitation to know

It is a mystery

How our awareness draws meaning from

Curve and angle, orifice and orb.

 

 March 23, 2014 parkway and flowers 019

*

Our mind creates the personalities;

Endless narratives spin and swirl,

Like moving pictures on a silvery screen.

 

 March 31 birds 013

(Our awareness the light,

Our mind the lens)

 

 March 23, 2014 parkway and flowers 033

We look to the face to connect,

To relate,

To recognize,

And to know recognition.

 

 April 1 2014 garden 025

*

 

(Perhaps most, hoping, searching

To find recognition…)

 

 April 1 2014 garden 089

*

 

Faces,

Interfaces,

Basis for knowing.

  1. So beautiful, WG. I laughed when I saw the robin leaning around the irises as if to say, “Who’s there?”

  2. What a beautiful daffodil. It does indeed have a face.
