My name is Jess. This is a blog of my daily obsessions.

First favorite poems have a way of sticking with you:




Sometimes It Turns Dry and the Leaves Fall Before They Are Beautiful


This crystal sphere

upon whose edge I drive

turns brilliantly—

The level river shines!

My love! My love!

how sadly do we thrive:

thistle-caps and

sumac or a tree whose

sharpened leaves

perfect as they are

look no farther than –

into the grass.


–William Carlos Williams.
