a composition sustained~


"Whether people are fully conscious of this or not,
they actually derive countenance
and sustenance from the 'atmosphere' of the things they live in or with.
They are rooted in them just as a plant is in the soil in which it is planted."
A.A.Bühlmann


I sit near the window...
in the early morning light...
a cup of tea....

and some buttons...

I sit..
finishing...
rooted in the atmosphere...

and for a moment I watch..
a house wren feeding her newest one 
one just out of the nest..
mouth open...waiting,trusting..accepting of nourishment...

I retained my countenance...
fully conscious of the ways I have..
been sustained...fed..by the hands of beautiful friends
this yarn...

these buttons...

sustenance for the soul...
and
for the body~
