Nature does not hurry yet everything is accomplished - Lao Tzu

I made a small tribute to our devoted friends who wait for us to come home:

and another small tribute to all the wonderful song birds who fill the air with beauty:

That the stars are adamant

everyone understands—

but I won’t give up seeking joy on each blue wave

or peace below every gray stone.

If happiness never comes, what is a life?

A lily withers in the sand

and if its nature has failed? The tide

washes the beach at night.

What is the fly looking for on the spider’s web?

What does a dayfly make of its hours?
- Edith Sondergran
