BLACK COTTONWOOD & ASPEN—autumn contrasts... [ click photo for next . . . ]
East Eagle Valley, South Wallowas
—On the road in the American Northwest.
When we are TURNED AWAY from the Sun,
we see the leaf's texture, its movement in the wind,
its inner structure and pattern.
FACING THE SUN--backlit, the leaf suddenly
comes alive, like the music of a poem
we finally remember to read out loud.
(53) Listening is never 2nd-hand. Creative tradition
never repeats. The works of the past can only be
discovered afresh by ears made vigorous and young
by the challenge—and the wonder—
of the New and Unknown.
