“If poetry comes not as naturally
          as the leaves to a tree,
          it had better not come at all.”

                — John Keats (1795-1821)
                    Letter to John Taylor
                    February 27, 1818

A leaf from the tree,
a poem from the heart,
both flowing naturally.

A leaf born from
the photo of light & knowledge,
the synthesis of togetherness.

A poem, the child that brings
knowledge together— an intuitive leap
that binds one to all things.

                — Peter Y. Chou
                     Palo Alto, 10-25-1989
