Morning Window, 2015, acrylic on canvas, 22 x 36 inches

Look in
and see him looking out.
He is not always
quiet, but there have been times
when happiness has come
to him, unasked,
like the stillness on the water
that holds the evening clear
while it subsides
—and he let go
what he was not.

—Wendell Berry, from Window Poems
