AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

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

Whisper.

Wyeth, Brush Pile, 1962


A farmhouse window far from back from the highway
speaks to the darkness in a small, sure voice.
Against the stillness, only a kettle’s whisper,
and against the stark cold, one small blue ring of flame.
