AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

Borrowing.

Mortensen, Frick Park, 2009


What is lovlier than a creek or a riverine thicket?
Say it is an unknown benefactor who gave us
birds and Mozart, the mystery of trees and water
and all living things borrowing time.
Would I still love the creek if I lasted forever?


- Jim Harrison, from "Debtors"
