washes winter from the sky,
brightening the blue,
bleaching the clouds,
refreshing the breeze,
filling the garden
with mud soup.
Poetic Asides, Day 7
Prompt: write about something clean or something dirty
The sun is shining, the skies are blue and Spring is finally here. I know, I know, I live in the land of perpetual sun. Why am I so excited about Spring? Well, for the last several weeks this had been the land of perpetual rain.
This morning the day was gorgeous and I wanted to be one with it. I left the house and stashed my purse in the car. I opened the gate so I could drive out onto the street, then I walked around the outside of my house and just enjoyed the yard. I enjoyed the grass beneath my feet. I enjoyed looking at the baby papayas high up in our tree, and the baby tomatoes and peppers on our plants in the back yard, and the baby apples on the Malay Apple tree. I noticed a couple of our orchids are about to bloom and our cactus is about to bloom again — blossoms for Thanksgiving AND Easter! Now that’s bounty!
And there I was, full circle. I got into the car and drove out of the drive way. I then had to get out of the car and shut the gate. But before I could shut the gate, I had to go back to the porch and get something I’d forgotten. It is a good thing there were rocks in the road or I might not have noticed until I arrived at work — I’d forgotten my shoes!
