Very apt and a lesson of life which we all should stick to.
There's much wisdom in this perfect brevity, Helen! Great write and response to your chosen intriguing artwork.
This is really beautiful... agreed with Hannah... full of wisdom! Love the artwork you have chosen to write upon :Dxoxo
I love how organic this work of art is, and how your poem focuses on personal growth.
I discovered his art in the late 80's ~~ and love his work!
I agree with your sage advice.
Such sound advice, Helen. I could say it fits me 'to a tittle'.That wise old Red Wood knew. Too bad it fell to the saw...
Those who have it have learned one of the most important secrets of life, and of happiness. Lovely, Helen, and great choice of artwork.
Precisely! Love it!
I love the quote, Helen. My husband is one of the most brilliant men I know, but it's fairly easy to close the mind off to new ways of viewing things...that's my complaint anyway, but I'm very much a dreamer.Thanks for your visit and very sweet comment, all of your kind words mean more to me than you know. By the way, I love that new header...cool!Jane xx
One must indeed!
Awesome! Intriguing art work, too.
I wish more would have open minds and hearts. Beautiful from choice of image to words.

Indeed! Especially when confronted by such a scene!
Hey Helen! Great minds think alike. He is so great isn't he? Really a moving artist. Did you see the show at Mass MOCA? Anyway, loved your poem too--you are certainly right about all you write of. Thanks. k.

Dearest Helen,You have used my feelings very well for creating this lovely poem!Sending you hugs,Mariette
what a great blog post! I've been remiss in not dropping by more often! Cheers!
Oh, that is such wisdom in your words!
But isn't it appropriate for some knowledge to become "rigid," some morality, for example?
saw the exhibition this last year...stunned by the imagination and use of materials...
