â€œWhat is this dark hum among the roses?
I have found them-havenâ€™t you?---
Stopped in the very cups of the flowers, their wings
a little tattered-so much flying about, to the hive,
then out into the world, then back, and perhaps dancing,
should the task be to be a scout-sweet, dancing bee.
I think there isnâ€™t anything in this world I donâ€™t admire.
bend close to study and
understand what is happening. Itâ€™s not hard, itâ€™s in fact
As instructive as anything I have ever studied. Plus, too,
itâ€™s love almost too fierce to endure, the bee
nuzzling like that into the blouse
of the rose. And the fragrance, and the honey, and of course
the sun, the purely pure sun, shining, all the while, over
all of us.â€
"It is those we live with and love and should know who elude usâ€¦â€¦now, nearly all those I loved and did not understand when I was young are gone, but I still reach out to them.
...Then in the arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the big Blackfoot river and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise.
Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.
I am haunted by waters."
