What we need is here

Geese appear high over us,

pass, and the sky closes. Abandon

as in love or sleep, holds

them to their way, clear

in the ancient faith: what we need

is here. And we pray, not

for new earth or heaven, but to be

quiet in heart, and in eye

clear. What we need is here.

A favourite poem by Wendell Berry. The tranquillity of this scene by Sarah Jacoby feels a good match.
