We begin…”Why do we start so early?” Terry asks, although he knows the answer.
There is just so much to do. Even if we don’t have the care of animals, we do have the care of the land.
The leaves are beginning to unfurl ever so slowly on the trees….first the cottonwood pushes off the little yellow sticky covers, the blooms burst forth (along with the pollen) and finally…if one looks closely the little tips of leaves are starting to appear.
It’s cold again (actually still–we had a couple of really nice days, but not right now.)
Look at the trash coming out of the canal
Masses of stuff.
My yard is the same way…all the corn leaves flew into the yard over the winter making lovely covers on everything. Also making debris come spring, which I must now remove for the gently growing bulbs to spiral up into the spring air.
The little birds are all puffed up keeping warm….they, like us, are ready for warmer weather (although we are NOT having snow like some of you…my heart goes out to you waiting for melt and warmth!)
I am a person who believes in mysteries, in secrets of the Universe, and in the magic of the common daily existence
For you see, I see it each and every day, but ‘specially on that day when we start water on the land…then I can see and feel the heart of the earth beating, slow, incessant, humming —-pulsing—throbbing, throughout the day and into the night—all through the night and back into the day…
Reflecting into the sky, where it is manifested for all to see.
From my world to your heart,
