"There can be a transcendent moment of pain, when you are peering intently into the space of a flower, as your soft nose is stung by a bee. Methinks, it’s strange to limit our connection with nature because we have fear of its field of unpredictability."

Today calls for an ode to green in all its permutations. Tumbling into the heat of summer and the sunburns that ride its coattails, I like to think of the ferns and trees as a sort of visual balm—something to soothe on even the fiercest afternoons.

I guarantee I’ll get lost in our woods at least once this year. Okay with it. —MN

beside the visible stream where current arrows the force of faith or infinity threading itself in glistening wakes or of words left dangling in the air amongst the change, the air-filled fairytale flowers peaceful chambers ripples into, 

now, being here or there

"What cannot be said will be wept."

And when a friend is lost,

the river, the park, the grass, the rocks, the walk,

arching trees and the breeze

lady on the horse, man in the trees

who will treasure the gift of heart’s keep?
