Five Senses

Every day into spring, I marvel at it's magnificence. Something new is open and in full glorious blossom each day. A few days ago, it was the Clematis that were opening. Today I notice the elegant Irises popping up on every street. It inspired me to take note of all the wonder that waits to be noticed in a simple day.

Sight: the purple goodness of a blueberry smoothie and rhodedendron in bloom
and pretty little parasols making a fairy fruit market
smell: the fragrance of yet another lilac bush in bloom
and clean clothes drying in the hot sun
sound: Vivi practicing on her violin
and singing along to the simple rhythm
"See the Little Monkey..."
touch: dancing in the mist of a sprinkler on a hot day in the garden
and fingers in the wispy wheatgrass
taste: crusty bread with tomato and cheese, what can I say?
