"Immersion in the life of the world, a willingness to be inhabited by and to speak for others, including those beyond the realm of the human, these are the practices not just of the bodhisattva but of the writer." --Jane Hirshfield

First Snow

One must have a mind of winter, and all that. Today was the first snowfall this winter where the flakes actually reached the ground and lingered. In lacy white, as if the clouds brushed off their sleeves. It's cold, too, but we'll be back to near 50 this weekend.

While you're at the U Penn site to read that poem, check out PENNsound - an archive of digital recordings of poetry.
