There's no place like Hannibal

So fun to see the lovely places my artwork lives on after it leaves me.  Somehow it often ends up exactly where it is meant to be :)  Thanks Happy Family Janice & Joakim plus 2!!

Lines Written in the Days of Growing Darkness Every year we have been
witness to it: how the
world descends
into a rich mash, in order that
it may resume.
And therefore
who would cry out to the petals on the ground
to stay,
knowing, as we must,
how the vivacity of what was is married to the vitality of what will be?
I don’t say

So let us go on though the sun be swinging east,
and the ponds be cold and black,
and the sweets of the year be doomed. — MARY OLIVER, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and author, most recently, of "Swan: Poems and Prose Poems"
