Far from Clarity

"Within each one there is a darkness.
And in that darkness only lives whom we create there."
Mia Couto


"I hide myself within my flower
That wearing on your breast.
You, unsuspecting, wear me too -
And angels know the rest.
I hide myself within my flower,
That, fading from your vase.
You, unsuspecting, feel for me
Almost a loneliness."
Emily Dickinson

The Open Road

"Why are there trees I never walked under 
but large and melodious thoughts descend upon me?"
Walt Whitman
