"Straight up from this road
Away from the fitted particles of frost
Coating the hull of each chick pea,
And the stiff archer bug making its way
In the morning dark, toe hair by toe hair,
Up the stem of the trillium,
Straight up through the sky above this road right now,
The galaxies of the Cygnus A cluster
Are colliding with each other in a massive swarm
Of interpenetrating and exploding catastrophes.
I try to remember that."
- Pattiann Rogers, Firekeeper
"God is the experience
of looking at a tree and saying, "Ah!""
- Joseph Campbell
“The world is full of magic
things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”
- William Butler Yeats
