watching the shores glide by,
move forever onward?”
― André Gide,
“If a dog will not come to you
after having looked you in the face,
you should go home
― Woodrow Wilson

and day begins to drift into the night.

Unique and lovely is the bluest rose.
– Andrea Dietrich
“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.”
– Mary Oliver
“However vast the darkness we must supply our own light”
— Stanley Kubrick
“A poet is a verb that blossoms light
in gardens of dawn,
or sometimes midnight.”
