A Piece of Rock is Full of Statues

The title quote is from Ursula K. LeGuin, "The Question I get Asked Most Often" from The Wave in the Mind. The rest is from my garden.

An empty pond is full of sky.

An empty pond is full of life.

Heavy air is haunted
By the kiss of Autumn's growing shadow.

The golden sun skulks resentfully west.

That's a lovely posting - "an empty pond is full of sky"...I love that!

Is the sun skulking because the moon is rising in the east? I love your Oriental effects. Keep chipping away at that rock and letting those interesting thoughts of yours free.

"An empty pond is full of sky." I love that image.
I have a question for you since I see you garden in El Cajon.
I am writing an article and wonder what kind of living Christmas trees you could plant in your area?
Any ideas you care to share with me?
