For instance, the crocus and anemone
have leaked past the bricks
that line the edge of the bed.
For instance, the wind.
For instance, those people
blew in through the door,
climbed all those flights of stairs,
and sat down to tell me their stories.
For instance, it has taken me
three days to clear my yard of branches.
For instance, this joy
wanders into the house
even when the doors are closed
against the last blast of winter.
1. Sometimes it seems like you have to get attached to Plan B in order for the tricksy Universe to commit to making Plan A happen. I am grateful for today’s full schedule (Plan A), and a project to do another day (Plan B). I don’t mean to disparage the Universe by this–it keeps one on one’s toes, eh?
2. Crocus and anemone leaking all over the yard.
3. Hey, that snow was pretty! No, I never thought I would use those two words in a sentence again, either. At least not this soon.
4. Reiki tomorrow
5. The web of interconnection. How the cards you draw have messages for me, too.
May we walk in Beauty!
