Two Poems & Two Photographs
the streets are empty the sidewalks abandoned as the white horse rides through God’s country while on the outskirts of life forgotten bodies long to be touched like lepers eyes waiting for the sun to rise lips praying for crumbs from your table
The Peace of Wild Things by Wendell Berry
When despair grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting for their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
