The Dreaming Artist

Painting by John William Waterhouse

We use our life to experiment with the truth. — Thich Nhat Hanh

*

Because we have not made our lives to fit
our places, the forests are ruined, the fields, eroded,
the streams polluted, the mountains, overturned. Hope
then to belong to your place by your own knowledge
of what it is that no other place is, and by
your caring for it, as you care for no other place, this
knowledge cannot be taken from you
