i may not know the answers, but i can still sing...

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. 
Chinese Proverb

(this is a downy woodpecker)

back porch on a rainy morning.

there are these gifts,
unexpected, undeserved,
even —
waking to thunder in the distance,
rain dripping from the gutters,
a camera to hand
and eyes to see...

shakespeare and stars

“When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,"

"And he will make the face of heaven so fine"

"That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun."

― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

emily dickinson, on bees, and revery.

“To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee,
And revery.
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.”
Emily DickinsonThe Complete Poems
