Leaf
Blossom
Tender fruit
What are these?
Mere grace notes
of tangle`root
barky`trunk
lanky`limb

The glory
of all mystery
lies in expression
never in its essence
All virtue’s authority
evident in its mercy
not in its might
or right

Shade
Fragrance
Silky`nectar
Within these we find
mystery’s authenticity
But for the senses
the spirit knows
no truth

About Peter Notehelfer

I'm a retired people person who now finds the time to watch the little details of the world without worrying about being watched by anyone . . . I live on an Island north of Seattle with my wife named Ellen, a yellow dog named McGee, a yellow cat named Gatzby, and four fine chickens . . . I read fiction, bake bread, smoke salmon, and fish whenever the weather allows . . . Oh, and yes, I try to write a poem every day simply to avoid senility!
