1/4/12 small stone

In the long dark of this tilt away from heat we call winter, I do not know what my eyes are hungrier for–green or the sun.

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  1. Green and sun…either one without the other is a little strange…like Alaska in the Summer…

    Love the small stone idea Susan. I often think of haiku or short poems in general as pebbles and the mind as a pool…kind of that buddhist metaphor thing. I’ve actually been working on an invented form with that in mind. will spell it our when I get it a little more,,,conceived.

  2. Both will not be bad. Very nice. 🙂

    Winter is the only time we have green (except lawns, plants) in the Bay Area. All the surrounding hills turn green. Usually theyre gold/brown.

    I always hope for a green Christmas (means wll have adequate water).

    I can find some pleasure in all seasons, but there’s this love of summer that permeates everything. I’m with ya there.

    • Yes–winter has its pleasures and beauty, but for me the season has an asceticism to it. It is what we prepare for, what we last through, what reduces us to our most basic. Summer is the hedonist spreading pleasure everywhere it goes.
