We think that accomplishing things will complete us, when it is experiencing life that will.
~ Mark Nepo
i pick the raspberries and water the vegetables
in the cool of the morning, still in my pj's
i have eggs for breakfast and a bowl full
of ripe, red berries, with a bit of vanilla balsamic
i dress and head to a close by lake with the dog
we sit on a blanket and watch families swimming,
a birthday celebration and kids on paddle boards
we both wade a bit, share an apple and
watch the leaves overhead play in the light
come evening i make an olive oil almond cake
with raspberries, writing this as it cools
I go where i shouldn't and . . .
it takes my breath away
