• Morning on Campus ...

    I took this at 7:50 this morning on the way to one of my classes. This picture reminds me of one of my favourite poems by Anne Sexton:

    The summer sun ray
    shifts through a suspicious tree.
    though I walk through the valley of the shadow
    It sucks the air
    and looks around for me.

    The grass speaks.
    I hear green chanting all day.
    I will fear no evil, fear no evil
    The blades extend
    and reach my way.

    The sky breaks.
    It sags and breathes upon my face.
    In the presence of mine enemies, mine enemies
    The world is full of enemies.
    There is no safe place.

    'Noon Walk on the Asylum Lawn'
