The Wide-World

The flowers are springing up, the season of singing birds has come, and the cooing of turtledoves fills the air.

—Song of Solomon 2:12

The wide world opens

in this lilac-eyed daisy

with its glacier white

petals and streaks

of ice-blue,

a treasury of beauty

on one single,

unassuming bloom,

and it awakens this 

field of new-green

that sits in a planter

just outside

my work-window —

a tiny garden,

a work of art,

an offering

reminding me

what makes

this world

meaningful —

created life.
