“Leave the door open for the unknown, the door into the dark. That’s where the most important things come from, where you yourself came from, and where you will go.”

~ Rebecca Solnit

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

questioning

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I’m not sure which matters more—where the seed comes from, or where it takes root and grows.”

~ Zetta Elliott

 

 

 

 

 

 

spill

 

 

 

 

 

summer in your house
the morning light poured in
spilling on the chenille
like warm milk

dishes clattering in the kitchen
as you made breakfast

 

 

 

 

 

ripening

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the heat stifles
flowers wilt
fruit ripens
(as do I)

 

 August is approaching

 

 

 

 

 

imperfect and alive

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Imperfection inspires invention, imagination, creativity.

It stimulates.

The more I feel imperfect, the more I feel alive.”

 

~ Jhumpa Lahiri
