A Treat to See

Aloha, Friend!

"One must truly HOLD A SPACE for oneself.
All things conspire
to close up this space."

Kay Ryan

"All along the backwater,
Through the rushes tall,
Ducks are a-dabbling,
Up tails all!"

The Wind in the Willows
'Ducks Ditty'
by Rat

"When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it,
it's your world for the moment.
I want to give that world to someone else.
Most people in the city rush around so,
they have no time to look at a flower.
I want them to see it whether they want to or not."

Georgia O'Keeffe


A Plain Ordinary Steel Needle
Can Float on Pure Water

Kay Ryan,
Poet Laureate of the United States

It's a treat to see water
so rubbery, a needle
so peaceful, the point encased
in the tenderest dimple.
It seems so simple
when things or people
have modified each others' qualities
