What Does Light Talk About

illuminated succulent

“When you recognize her beauty,
the eye applauds,
the heart stands in an ovation,

and the tongue when she is near
is on its best behavior,

it speaks more like light.

What does light talk about?
I asked a plant that once,

It said, “I am not sure,
but it makes me
grow.”

–Thomas Aquinas, “Love Poems from God”, translated by Daniel Ladinsky

In the Spaces

 

“What I see in Nature is a magnificent structure that we can comprehend only very imperfectly, and that must fill a thinking person with a feeling of humility. This is a genuinely religious feeling that has nothing to do with mysticism”

—Albert Einstein

 

revealed in the spaces
between the leaves
a crystalline structure of air

reminding me to carve space into each day of the week…
