How can I tell you everything that is in my heart.
Impossible to begin.

Maira Kalman   first words of The Principles of Uncertainty

the undersides

the underside of the leaf
cool in shadow
sublimely unemphatic
smiling of innocence

the frailest stems
quivering in light
bend and break
in silence

this poem, like the paintings, is not really about nature
it is not about what is seen

it is about what is known forever in the mind

Agnes Martin
