Rescue Me

Rescue Me

I snapped on Shakespeare's leash and out we went for our lunchtime walk. We hadn't gone very far when we came upon a snail making his way across the sidewalk, headed towards the road. I picked him up gently and returned him to safety. Halfway up the hill, we came upon...

Why We Are Here

Why We Are Here

All night, a gentle rain fell while I slumbered. I woke to the smell of freshness, the garden bathed and clean. The sun had not yet climbed high enough to share her warmth; I pulled on my coat to go outside. Puddles lined the pathway and pooled on the blossoms and...

Only Love

Only Love

The Flowers Speak

The Flowers Speak

Standing on the garden path, I thought the summer's sun had tricked my mind— a kind of feverish delusion— as the flowers whispered, "Listen." I leaned in closer, straining to discern what I had heard. There it is was again! "Listen." My heart heard it, distinctly....

Break Open The Clods

Break Open The Clods

Late in the afternoon, when the sun was losing her intensity, I tugged on my overalls and garden gloves and set out to plant red amaranth. The birds at the feeder kept me company, singing their little songs, talking amongst themselves about the day. Digging the holes,...

What Lies Inside Of You Today

What Lies Inside Of You Today

Clink! I knew that sound. My trowel had hit a rock. I worked the soil around it so I could free it. I had no sooner removed it when my trowel struck another. Then another. This is a rocky patch, I thought to myself. Memories of my past drifted to mind— times when my...
