When the world clamors loud, we can run to the honesty of nature and trust the quiet communication of a poem. Poetry, photographs, paintings and sculptures- all creative efforts  speak to us in a language all their own. Let’s listen.

 

 

Illation

 

I like birds…and beasts.

With them there is no hidden agenda.

 

There is no pretending, manipulation,

misunderstanding,  or misgivings-

as with my own kind.

 

Everything is laid bare, whether

breathtaking, beautiful, tender

or terrifying.

 

and I-

having observed both from

safe distance

 

find more wisdom

among them.
