Round Lake's cloud and tree
reflections rippled by the
dragonfly's sweet kiss.

There is nowhere I feet closer to God than when I am in nature. My favorite walk is around Green Lakes, especially once I get to smaller Round Lake, which gives me a more intimate, immediate connection to what feels holy in the world. It is always different—as with the dragonfly’s kiss momentarily rearranging the reflections—and yet I always feel welcomed home as I am embraced by the trees, the springy response of the soft path underfoot.

Growing up I used to write a lot of haiku; a few were even published in the school district’s literary magazine. I was going to be an English teacher but became an art teacher instead. This wonderful Poster Project has brought me ’round circle, reconnecting me with both my loves in one poster. What a privilege and a delight!
