What a Lovely Morning

What a lovely morning. 

The sound of a thousand crickets chirp as if saying hello to the sun. The air that wafts out of the Canyon is heavy with the sweet thick scent of Russian Olive trees, overwhelming my senses like ripe honeydew melon in an enclosed room. 
The creek babbles with stories of the eons, chortling with joyous remembrance, and quiet murmurs of changing times. 
My mind becomes still and the present envelopes me. 

It is a wonder I get anything done, ever.
I would much rather sit here surrounded by the blue sky, listen to crows mock, feel the breeze and sun on my skin, than enter the world of busyness and accumulation.

The words of Mary Oliver come to mind, "It is what I was born for- to look, to listen, to lose myself inside this soft world- to instruct myself over and over in joy and acclamation."

Ahhhh- it is a lovely morning!

Wishing everyone "a peace in the moment" day 


  1. Oh, my dear, your words take me there...
    Thank you. ♥

    1. If I swept you into a moment- then I am accomplished.
