Dalai Lama said, "There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called YESTERDAY and the other is called TOMORROW, so today is the right day to love, believe, do, and mostly live..."

i grew up in a quiet house
with all the doors shut


i was quiet to begin with, but
the windows were shut too


in stratified silence, sometimes i could
see light trickling through the blinds
bird calls carried on the breeze


and if i leaned into the window
i could smell the green
