One of my favorite places, easy local for a quick refuge;
Sun hit me as I drove in to my driveway after work,
The sun stayed out for the whole walk,
From the course of the day I would not have expected sun; I really only semi noticed the distant
April rays as I ran a couple of errands after work.. nevertheless...
I felt another of our mother earth's elements in wonderment, and looked up from my work of this regular day, which really rather wore on as a reflection of it's transcending atmosphere.
I worked hard as if to help the clock ever so slowly turn.
Not fighting the slow flow, nor just being that...
It was all transmuted to heaven's liquid splendor.
And there it was; the fine mist of rain so thin yet filling the air completely.
It was just a mist, and yet a full on thin mist.
Although I am sure there were down pours throughout the morning, I hadn't noticed the day's climate, not really.
But this liquid dew of flight drew me out.
I couldn't even really have told you what I was doing before that.
I just awakened, and was completely enchanted like nothing before existed,
and yet this simple existence was born.
It only really took a moment to be revived!
I am so grateful for that little moment.
I love weather patterns. This year is amazing...
As someone passed I was brought back to the task at hand.
I stocked, then scrubbed the bristo with bravado! I still have a few layers and that work is never ever done,
Hence the job security....
I simply call it, shining diamonds...
The mist out the window today felt just like at the beach I haven't been to in two years!
I was transported right then and there!
Folks east of the Rockies call us coasties.
They consider where I live the coast.
I know, comparatively, it's true;
But it's an hour plus to get to the sea from here.
I do have my rivers and the valleys and streams
The Ostrander Brook is my refuge to nature these days.
So it goes that my herbs of study are those I know and can find in my environment;
Ostrander gave me these beauties to say hello to today;
Horsetail and Nettle(didn't get photo)
|Here is my example of the progression of the very same Cleaver clump I posted back on February 25th. And today I donned my jean jacket as well! Nice to have the warmth of the world and be in it!|
