From the corner of your eye...

"Poetry is the kind of thing 
you have to see 
from the corner of your eye... 
For a poem is not the end, 
but the beginning, 
of an excursion.  
Back and forth we go -- 
scenes, impressions, ideas.  
All sorts of quick glimpses 
are quickly dismissed 
as random or uninteresting, 
but some lead richly onward."

~ William Stafford
