Poetry in Unexpected Places

I am sitting in the Indianapolis airport waiting on a delayed flight. I have walked the terminal several times and was struck by the beautiful painted glass windows, some of which include poems. The images have a restful quality to them and I love that someone took the time to create such beauty in what is sometimes a sterile space.

The one in the photo says:

Back home
On the ground
We discover
that the gift
the great wings gave us
is new eyes to see that
this place where we live
we love more than we know

I certainly love the place I live and I knew that all along but the poem reminds me of my connection to our farm and our home.

The art is by Martin Donlin and the poem is by Norbert Krapf. You can learn more about the art in this brochure.
