Windows share two properties


& roots

Eyes out
into the world.
Eyes into an interior.
And the same goes with roots.

Now think of root vegetables and meals which beg to be taken outside.
What does a window really see?
Do roots recognize flowers?  A plate its salad?  Paper anticipate a poem?
Go look out your favorite window.  Can you see how questions feed hunger?

  1. Divine Presence

    What concerns me is eluding religion
    pretending it doesn't exist
    ignoring it in others.
    Centuries of birds in flight
    can be chiseled in a doorway--
    the passion of engraving takes flight
    as we look up to worship--
    how can a song not echo in such a space?
