We must sail...

"I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it,--but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor."

--Oliver Wendell Holmes

Safe and warm...

Little rabbit in the rain,
sitting in the sodden grass
with dampened fur and
frightened eyes,
the storm has passed.
Soon the sky will clear
and the birds will sing once more.
The sun will dry the earth,
and you'll be safe and warm.
