Under the Sun

Today was about gardening.

The sun was high and strong, and things were growing again.

It is good to see life goes on, even when it lies dormant for so long.  By the end of the day, things just seemed greener, more robust, and glad to be so.  It feels good to feel spring.


I was reminded of a favorite by the great William Carlos Williams:

Portrait of a Woman at her Bath

it is a satisfaction

a joy

to have one of those in the house

when she takes a bath

she unclothes

herself she is no

Venus

I laugh at her

an Inca

shivering at the well

the sun is

glad of a fellow to

marvel at

the birds and the flowers

look in
