I went out to my old house yesterday. I will be closing the sale for it soon, so I think this will be my final visit as the owner. I mostly walked around the yard, taking note of flowers beginning to appear. Spring blooms are definitely on their way. One of my favorite flowers showing early year is a bed of violets. They are so lovely and ephemeral, a joy for just a few weeks.
especially in spring.
How can this small white seed know
the secret of
I’m comforted to think
that it will never
But is it comforting
