yes

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
wich is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday;this is the birth
day of life and love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any-lifted from the no
of all nothing-human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

e.e.cummings

illimitably earth

illimitably earth

    I love Cummings. I adore his novel, The Enormous Room. What a beautiful poem and a beautiful photo for this first day of spring.

    When I saw you’d posted I was braced for a discussion of the 90% tax on the AIG bonuses 🙂

    Happy Friday to you Evenshine!
