i walked thru the garden
and picked my first cherries from the tree.
it felt like that first taste of sweet.
i simply stood there,
reaching out and reaching up...
and what was it that pablo neruda once said?
"i want to do with you
what spring does with cherry trees..."
and i found a smile on my face.
today, it felt like there was magic in the garden.
and magic in the day.
i saw my first rose that came to bloom.
with her orange and peach and pink.
and it's just a day or two,
and then my peonies,
will hold their promise too.
i saw the first shades of lavender,
and the shy white purity of my jasmine.
with each and every day,
it feels like its all promising something new.
life amazes me at times.
simply, the little things...
like a garden in spring.
and cherry trees.'
and what amazed you today?
what made you fall into that glorious wonder of wonder?
