After a late spring rain, the freshened arbor bursts with life force. Blooming and burgeoning plant-forms grope their way into another season of being, under the whispering canopy. The rhythm of rushing water underscores the call of all things wild and free, into fresh growth, vigor, and sparkling green. Resilient, life unfolds.
The forest shows us the conjoined poles of the Grand Paradox, the dynamic mix and sensuous interplay of masculine and feminine principles, the unknowable yin and yang. From the steady, sure, unfading boulders anchoring the multitude of energies, to the glimmering rivulets vibrating amid fecund shores; from the pristine, continuous blue of the sky-dome to the groping aggregates of rough moss and lichen fields; to the fleeting but certain presence of pungent breeze....
Something stirs in my soul, and it is larger than joy.
