everything is waiting and still

“Sketching in the big woods is wonderful…
Everything is green.
Everything is waiting and still
Slowly things begin to move,
to slip into their places.
Groups and masses and lines tie
themselves together.
Colors you had not noticed
come out, timidly or boldly.
Here is a picture, a complete
thought,
And there another and there…”

— Emily Carr, September 1935.
