This Day

On

a day

like this day

like no other day

before, since or after today,

it dawned anew, fresh,  pure, clean

as if the first to have been.

Yesterday is gone, the future does not exist.

So place your mind firmly on this present moment.

This point in time, it’s all we will ever have.

A Singular Moment of Spring

soft

sheer curtains

gently lift slightly

by a cool wind

that began across the lake

kicking up tiny, white, capped ripples

and carrying the fragrance of Confederate Jasmine

that mingled with the smell of wet beaches,

and freshly washed laundry just hung on the clothesline.

A singular moment of spring caught upon a sunlit breeze.

Tabebuia

Dig
the earth,
hoe the weeds,
prepare the soil
for planting a tree.
You must dig deep and make
a gently rounded, high berm
to hold in the moisture that will
provide sustenance for its growing.
A tabebuia’s in the garden now.

Caring for it daily while giving love,
you’ll be amazingly rewarded
by its hardiness and beauty.
A bit of fertilizer
now and then, will keep it
strong and blossoming.
Yellow flowers
bloom en masse
trumpet
shaped.

My first attempt at an etheree.  These lovely Tabebuia  (Tab-a-boo-ya) trees bloom in the spring here in Central Florida.  They are especially spectacular when blooming by the water’s edge– their brilliant yellow being reflected in the water.  Also known as the Yellow Trumpet Tree for their trumpet shaped flowers.  They also come in  pink (Pink Trumpet Tree).
