Exquisite

I love the light at this time of year.

It turns the ordinary into wonder —

Take the stem of a flower, for example.

Early morning flowers

Are turned into works of art

And dewy petals

Into perfection.

  19. Hi, Clarification from my blog post. I dislike MISBEHAVING and UNRULY and UNDISCIPLINED children… Babies crying for good reasons don’t bother me —except for the fact that parents should know to take them out of places where quiet is needed –like church…
