How can you stand it—looking at things?

For example, the geranium

out on the patio, the single pink

blossom in the sun? Or stand the sunlight

 moving through it, illuminating,

holding the flower open like a high clear note,

an ecstatic widening which

 arrives, arrives.

 from Kate Northrop, The geranium
