An inquiry now, into the roots of our being.

What is sanity?

Sometimes it seems as if only things like blades of grass have sanity --
       as if only through their serenity, their mute virtue and wisdom,
       could we gain a sense of life as it might become.

Generations have dimly felt that somehow within nature lies a template
        for guidance --
        that genuine revelation lies within the livingness of grass.
             of cloud, of light --
         a revelation sharpening our knowledge of the roots of kindness,
              the beginnings of humility.
