All things perfect

Strolling in the gardens
with my beautiful friend 

as we appreciate
each other
and the vast beauty
surrounding us.

The air
so perfect
more spring-like 
than summer-like 
kissing our skin 
as it breezes by

shades of  green,  purple, red, orange and yellow
paint the canvas

as the palate of pigments  
blend into

the  panoramic view
as it awaits us.

Ginko leaves

water lilies 

lotus bliss
smile back at us
as if
we are merely spectators
in their innate wisdom
as we become

drunk with inspiration 
opening to their healing
as the birds sing
songs of wisdom
and butterflies dance
in delight.

We ask the buds
“What will become of you?”
as they gently
remind us 
of our uniqueness 
and beauty

as we unfold 
and emerge
all within perfect time.

What will become of you, my dear friend?


  1. my heart stands up and practically sings
    over that hollyhock!
    and the rest of me is leaning into
    the beauty of this place
    with my whole weight...just drinking it in:)
    THANK you for letting me come alongside
    your becoming.
    (it's a beauty)
