but my grandson sees a wish flower to be picked,
make a wish with eyes closed tight,
then blow the seeds in all directions for the wish to come true.

“Sculptural form is not the imitation of natural form
any more than poetry is the imitation of natural conversation . . .
While a piece of sculpture may contain visual forms with which we are acquainted by daily experience, it is essentially a design worked out by means of the juxtaposition of masses in space, just as poetry is a design wrought by the sounds of words in time.”

~ Elizabeth Wyn Wood (October 8, 1903 – January 27, 1966)
