What You See

The question is not what you look at, but what you see.

It is only necessary to behold the least fact or phenomenon,

however familiar, from a point a hair's breadth aside from our habitual path or routine,
to be overcome, enchanted by its beauty and significance.
To perceive freshly, with fresh senses is to be inspired.

Henry David Thoreau

I see a place to crawl in and whisper my secrets to the earth, 
knowing that she will keep them safe.
What is it that you see?
