Why this?

The occasional poem of my own and a generous helping of work by others that I find inspiring. Site is named for a beloved book by one of my favorite writers, Italo Calvino, whose fanciful work lights--and delights--my soul.

Windows

Beware the simplicity of windows
that they show a landscape you will never
by the nature of things
be permitted to enter.

It is there
and you
(whoever and wherever you are)
are here.
Language keeps you in your place.

The hills endure your absence forever.

--Robert Kelly, from this
