The earth grows back

The sun has come out to play...

 It is warming up the afternoon in golden globules of excitement and gentle abandonment…

I amble through the garden unaware of time.   
Oblivious of space I follow the light...
Aware only of this new effervescent surge of life all around.  

The earth grows back
Had I noticed until now?
The essence of Spring is everywhere... 
And whose eyes are watching me from above?

Whose eyes are those watching me from the ground.  Whose heads pushing through the womb of the earth… bursting through life—the hostas, the Shasta Daisy, the hydrangea, the early bulbs.  Life wakening. 

Then… there… over the bridge and beyond, a mystifying sound scrapes the ground. Small sounds in the brush—unrelenting.  

 I turn around; eyes searching the air ears focused on the unknown heart a-leaping racing thoughts.  “Spirit, don’t you know it’s a world of wonders out there?”.

Oh but I do want to know… who lives there with no stone to mark the place, what intriguing housing complexes and residents perched on the tops?

If I could be on the other side of the bridge without having to cross it, I would have gone there a long time ago, but alas, there is only mystery below and beyond… brief flickers, strange scratches of moment through dense trees and brush…

And sometimes… there too... the silent dwellers of the woods.  

 Their countenances appear disappear, vanishing like a beating of wings… 

I'm then reminded that...
"The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you...
You must ask for what you really want. 
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch. 
The door is round and open..."

Everything is not always rosy in the garden of life.  Yet, we can always decide to live life connected to the wonder and see the world through the eyes of a child.  Breathe in and live and be reminded of the power of hope and the miracle that life truly is.  

Thank you for coming by... may you find time to stop and appreciate the wonder you have seen and remind yourself to look for the blessing in life.  The more you seek what you want the more it comes to you!
