#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream
Yesterday's walk in March woods was a poke in the eye.
Yet, somehow, this morning, after all that whining and grumbling, stagnation and loss, I see all that's lovely and pulsing with energy:
Bark flakes off trees like exquisitely aged fine patches of skin
Ice bubbles cradle a newborn life
I'm kneeling and listening – here's the shusshing heart of a brook
Lichen unspools like thread, pale green on bright white
The landscape, the weather, unchanged; all the signs and symbols I see are a revelation; somehow, it's my vision - because of the poking? – that's fresh and renewed.
