I first studied William Carlos Williams The Red Wheelbarrow in high school. I didn't understand it at the time, and forgot about it over the years. The other day, I was remembering a poem that I had to memorize for a class in university, and this little beauty popped into my head:
I love this poem: the simplicity; the beauty; the truth. We don't realise how the smallest and simplest of things can end up being amongst the most important, and also how looking harder and deeper at every day objects -- or people -- can help us find the beauty in them.
As you go into your weekend, I ask that you tell me about one thing -- person or object -- that you take for granted.
Happy Friday, and May the 4th be with you!
