Arrangement of trees makes its own stories
protecting birds and refugees
a bench, a mug and thank you cards are not obsolete
they remain relevant to civility
Maybe balance is exactitude mathematically
but love can drink in a glass of gold
and remain in orbit
not oblivious of other galaxies.

note: Currently I’m reading Artful by Ali Smith and Hillbilly Elegy by J.D.Vance.

Ali Smith is becoming one of my favorite contemporary writers.
