Friends and neighbors delight me.
They are scattered hither and yon.
My discourse with a blogger friend,
Anne Mehrling continued with her
mention of a beautiful cherry blossom
tree near her driveway. She sent photos.
The delicate pink shade was stunning.
Our Upstate New York gardens are only
Just beginning to display their beauty.
As I walked around this morning, I discovered
remnants of a bird’s eggshell in robin blue.
Odd that they are nesting now I thought.
I picked up the delicate pieces to examine.
On a positive note, I thought the baby had
finally left the nest saying “look, Ma, I can
fly now.” I secretly celebrate its flight.
I have impatiently awaited the tulips
at the base of our witch hazel tree to open.
Only one was brave enough to open.
The rest await the chilly wind to dissipate.
This week’s snowfall reminded me that
we are not yet done with old man Winter.
At least the snow was less significant
than one year ago. The tulips are hardy.
Keeping close contact with family, friends
and neighbors allows us to practice the
Golden Rule. We humans are very social
creatures. My wanderlust remains but
has assumed new dimensions these days.
Mostly online when not in person. But
the heart speaks as I continue my quest of
hither and yon and life’s meaning. Be well.
