Spaces for comings

And goings.


 March 27, 2014 parkway 040


Open or shy,



April 1 2014 garden 091




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



 April 1 2014 garden 031



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





Basis for knowing.


 April 1 2014 garden 017

  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.
