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.

52

The shame of dumb ideas is suffered by the best
but the absence of intelligence means a fool for sure
claiming external things are nothing but illusions
and not understanding wealth is simply luck
the leaves in the stream move without a plan
the clouds in the valley drift without design 
I closed my eyes and everything was fine
I opened them again because I love mountains

--Stonehouse
