The following is by Writer’s in the Grove member, Bev Walkler, a poet, author, painter, and family historian.
It laughs, it cries, it shouts, it sings,
and makes no sound at all
It’s a photo, a painting, a place to live
you can hold in the palm of your hand.
It holds everything you can ever imagine,
and sees nothing.
It has no hands or feet or brain
to do what it proclaims, still
It builds a house, makes a quilt, sees an atom,
takes you to the moon.
It comforts, cajoles, strikes terror, or peace,
Depends on what you put in it.
It is the still small voice
of all there is, was, or ever will be.
