...It is interesting how inspiration can settle upon my thoughts-in my minds eye.
gentle, warm breeze
laying atop freshly mown grass-its sweet smell.
I gaze up into the sky...perfectly blue, with perfectly drifting clouds
birds singing, new leaves-softly rustling
Cherry blossom petals fluttering down, to the ground.
Funny, how sadness can give way to bliss, melting away from my soul---if only for a moment.
I close my eyes, feel my body's weight nestled onto the earths surface-as one.
Warm green, embrace...
If this is what heaven is like, I will look forward to it. But for now, I will have to settle for artistic capture-to protect my memory.
