On May Day

LKHunsaker.com

This May Day
I reclaim my spirit
with music
(David Garrett’s gorgeous violin)
with birds singing outside my open window
with a day of rest
after physically tiring, mentally healing
days of working in the gardens
with writing
having recaptured
the spirit
of the writing
itself

May I hold it,
cherish it,
remember
why.

And May you.

”There are two things to aim at in life;
first to get what you want,
and after that to enjoy it.
Only the wisest of mankind
has achieved the second.”
Logan Pearsall Smith
(from my calendar for May)

What a stunning photo, Loraine. The poetry and photo was a wonderful way to begin my Monday--a gray, cold, windy day in Texas. Celia
