One day I want to write a line as beautiful and as hopeful as this…

Like something almost being said”

      Yeah, it’s sometimes unfair to pull out individual lines from poems as something to aspire to… because we all need to be able to write more than a great line. But this is one that I’ve just loved for a long time.

    A very Zen quality to it. Lately I have been being threatened with random “Zen a Day Calendar” posts that aren’t even linear… yesterday I had October 20th sitting on my desk… there are a few with beautiful lines though. Much like this one.
