It doesn't have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don't try
to make them elaborate, this isn't
a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.

--Mary Oliver, Thirst

Oooooohhh! GORGEOUS!

And I love farmer's markets so it makes it all the sweeter.

I'm a bit envious as my brain has not wrapped around that Big Labs collage concept yet. I have the photos ready to go but I can't get my images to load in BL. I'll get it - in the meantime, I'll just enjoy this nice little presentation you've put together. Mary Oliver's words are very nice!
