the house is ready, the fridge is stocked
the presents are wrapped and i am in anticipation mode
they arrive tomorrow and we are ready. . .
today the dog and i walked, it had been awhile,
both of us took our time, spotted beauty in the pond
and the woods around us . . .
i can't remember the last time i took a selfie
for some reason, which i won't question
i felt a deep need to mark this beautiful day
Orchard and Road
In the traffic of our days
may we attend to each thing
so that patterns are revealed
amidst the offerings of chance.
All things want to be heard,
so let us listen to what they say.
In the end we will hear what we are:
the orchard or the road leading past.
~ Rainer Maria Rilke
