Now we understand —

time is not a fleeting thing,

it is we who fleet.

Now we understand –

time does not have any wings,

Now we understand –

there is only one present

for us to unwrap.

Loving thoughts to everyone. ❤❤

Sunset gave itself

to a seashell on the beach

that’s where she found it.

(This shell was found in 1982, on the beach in Edmonds, Washington. In all my years of beach-combing, I never found another one like it.)

 Birch trees catch my eye

deep in the trough of winter

white bark withstanding.

Heavy laden sky

surrenders to lure of earth

forest is hush-hush.
