from here

from here,

the tall clover


to stand over

the little

white house

like some great

purple trees;

from here,

it’s amazing

when deer

come a-grazing–

the little

white house

doesn’t reach

to their knees

Dalai Lama Quote

I’m always chasing down some kind of wildlife for a picture, but I have to admit, I have far more shots of their backsides as they run away than anything else. It makes me wonder why every animal I encounter, great or small, is utterly terrified of me. Anyway, it’s not always a bad thing that I can’t catch them, which brings me to the Dalai Lama quote:

“Remember that sometimes

not getting what you want

is a wonderful stroke of luck.”
