things are happening very fast now

Day 211

Watch carefully, things are happening very fast now.

Trout Lily, Dutchman’s Breeches, Spring Beauties and violets,

will very quickly lose their blooms

on the steady march towards

setting seed.

The Bloodroot flowers are already gone.

Everywhere you look

green is pressing up

breaking through soft ground

and reaching for the sun.

Sit still,

be quiet,

soften your gaze and clear your mind.

There are a million stories all around us,

if we just learn to open our eyes.

Thank you for listening,
