There are few things better than bumming around. The other day J. and I went to Mt. Auburn Cemetery. ''It's so beautiful here," I said to J., "death doesn't seem so bad." "I keep death and nature separate," J. answered, meaning, I believe, that sky, trees, birds were in one category and death in another. The sky was dramatic.
Here is a tall ship sailing in stone.
Yesterday A. and I walked through Robbins Park and admired the fans hanging from the trees.
They caught the wind.
And here are a few lines about taking pictures:
Keep still! I say to children
but let cattails shake, asters shiver,
oak creak, hawks dive,
branches crack, leaves silver,
storms rip, so the world reveals
secrets and my picture blurs.
