There are things about seeing
that go beyond understanding.

In special places
I have found stones,
rolled them in my hands,
pondered them,
washed them,
viewed their endless
profiles and qualities,
and even after time
I continue to revel
and am transfixed by their profound sensibility
and substantive content.

And I wonder,
will I ever be able
to truly explain What
I can so clearly see.

I think not.
But I believe what I see.
