Mirror, Mirror


Be true to yourself.

Even when it is broken,

you live from the heart.


You’re already doing, you’re always doing, what’s in your heart. You can’t get away from your heart.

On the craggy rocks

azure ocean foams the shore.

Pendulum

January

It is his first snow.

“Daddy, the ground is all gone!”

“Son, it will come back.”

He has made everything beautiful in its time.
