Stroll Through the Wildflowers


Each Sunday morning, Spring through Fall, I always take a stroll through the wildflowers that grow and bloom along the garden and canal of our Community Garden at my church.  It was something that I would do with Goose a few times a week during the evening hours.  It was so peaceful and a time of reflection.  And a time of beautiful joy to watch Goose weave in and out of the colorful and fragrant blooms.  This past Sunday I happen to have my phone with me as I strolled along and took a few pics of my walk among the beautiful.

O flower! Attired in pure natural innocence,
You are ignorant of your enchanting aroma,
Unaware of your Charm,
Dances freely with flirtious breeze,
Hardly cares about worldly things,
You are neither selfish nor altruistic
Full of Self yet so Selfless!


I am fascinated by your tranquil disposition,
At dawn you bath in sun's rays,
Flirt with buzzing bees,
Fall a deep sleep in afternoon warmth.
Enjoy melodious sound of chirping birds

Your love, up there - the sky,
Gazes you with intense admiration,
Sky kisses you tenderly through its winds,
You spread your fragrances in its arms,
Sky grows enamored of your presence,
What a beautiful bond!
