the rush of a toddler’s hug

the overcoat of the autumnal sun

the throb of a lover’s heartbeat


the explosion of blackberry sweetness

the piquancy of herbal tea

the mellowness of creamed corn


the aroma of baking bread

the musk from spring rains

the bouquet of yellow roses


the tinkling of wind chimes

the shouts of scarlet peonies

the snapping of burning logs


the glistening of spider webs

the luminescent of Saturn

the quickening of rainbows


Such gifts are all around us. By savoring them, we open our dark places for new seeding and thrive!
