a Grand Opening


petals soft and slightly blushing
winter's gone, begin grounds rushing
peeling back each separate layer
sun's deep warmth spurns on the players
a pageantry, Earth's celebration
side by side they praise creation
all new growth, a slow evoking
Mother's ready for her Grand Opening

your poetry and photos are lovely. I browsed your flickr page and am in love with your new puppy. the photos of the orchards really made me miss home. on long california cartrips when I was little, my dad made a game out of seeing how many rows of gorgeous almond and orange trees I could count as we whizzed by.

John O'Donahue said that spiritually we are suffering from a global crisis in the nature of beauty. Posts like this one, and really your whole blog restore my faith that beauty is alive and well and vibrantly being promoted in the world. Wonderful job.
