AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Sprout.

Erwitt, Second Ave., New York, 1951


On Top

All this new stuff goes on top
turn it over, turn it over
wait and water down
from the dark bottom
turn it inside out
let it spread through
Sift down even.
Watch it sprout.

A mind like compost.


- Gary Snyder

Thanks, Facie Populi.
