Tulips and mysteries!

Mysteries, Yes

Truly, we live with mysteries too marvelous
to be understood.

How grass can be nourishing in the
mouths of the lambs.
How rivers and stones are forever
in allegiance with gravity
while we ourselves dream of rising.
How two hands touch and the bonds
will never be broken.
How people come, from delight or the
scars of damage,
to the comfort of a poem.

Let me keep my distance, always, from those
who think they have the answers.

Let me keep company always with those who say
"Look!" and laugh in astonishment,
and bow their heads.

i posted this poem just over a year ago when glenn was going thro his first operation and it still holds truth for me. Another wonderful blipper reminded me the other day....so i repeat it here cos it says all i want to say about this experience.

good night from perth ontario!
