See How Her Tulips Glow

Radient Glow

” … no girl had ever moved me with a story
of spiritual suffering and so beautifully her
soul showing out radiant as an angel
wandering in hell and the hell the
selfsame streets I’d roamed in watching,
watching for someone just like her
and never dreaming
the darkness and the mystery
and eventuality of our meeting in eternity.”

Jack Kerouac

Bright Side

“Inside you are sweet beyond telling!
There is a sun in everyone.
I become a mirror that cannot close
its eyes to your longing.
My eyes wet with yours in the early light.
My mind every moment giving birth,
always conceiving,
always in the 9th month.
And then, an empty sky,
and everything is soul and flowering.
Everything is soul and flowering!”

Nature’s Depth

“It was not that the jagged precipices
were lofty, that the encircling woods were
the dimmest shade, or that the waters were
profoundly deep; but that over all,
rocks, wood, and water, brooded the spirit of repose,
and the silent energy of nature stirred
the soul to its inmost depths.”

Thomas Cole
