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 . . .

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