Reflections





WATER

The world turns softly
Not to spill its lakes and rivers.
The water is held in its arms
And the sky is held in the water.
What is water,
That pours silver,
And can hold the sky?

I'm not much of a poetry person, so...

HOLY COWS! THAT'S A LOT OF SAGUAROS ON THAT HILL!!!!

Looking at that hill, I'd be very grateful to be in the valley. Love the contrast!
