As we drift around the bitter wastelands of snow,

Looking for ice that lets the light in,

And copses,

We think:

This one will be beautiful,

And it isn't.

We have bothered to uncover our camera,

Our finger doesn't sting with cold yet,

And though there's little to see,

We waste a few pictures,

That cost us nothing.

Nothing costs us anything anymore,

Now that we have grown careful and wise.

And we do the greatest things we have ever done,

Knowing how small they are.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
