I am enjoying a lovely morning from bed with my sprained ankle propped, window opened above my head as the breeze carries with it sweet bird song. LIFE is GOOD and blessing filled. Sometimes we imagine we must dig deep, search hard for them.
~And then in another moment, they just appear as dappled light through leaves dancing on a faded floral quilt. I remember when it was impossible for months and months and months slipping in and out of years (not very long ago) for me to go anywhere besides a doctor’s office or physical therapy, bedridden from MS. Yes there is a part of me that would like to be out playing in our earthy garden on this beautiful day, just as I had fantasized I would be doing in my courage infused wandering thoughts a little over a week ago, hiking up giant mountains, mottled in sun and shadow much like the peaks and valleys on my coverlet, yet right now, a more grounded part of me is quite content sipping tea, listening to the world beyond my window, watching it waltz across the garden of my bed.
summer flowers relinquish their petals
others still brilliant urged on perhaps
by cooler nights descending
end of summer starts early
in the north
but the feast of color lasts
blues greens silvers and rich browns
will sate our hunger
but i’m getting ahead of the moment
and that is a bit wasteful
The I Heart Macro linky is still open until 8pm EST.
