Harshness vanished. A sudden softness
has replaced the meadows’ wintry grey.
Little rivulets of water changed
their singing accents. Tendernesses,
hesitantly, reach toward the earth
from space, and country lanes are showing
these unexpected subtle risings
that find expression in the empty trees
~Rainer Maria Rilke
The times at Zen Tea and Catacombs Coffeehouse were sweet and memorable. We’re most thankful to you for lighting up those small spaces.
