thou art bereft
And from thy slender store
two loaves alone to thee are left,
Sell one and from the dole
buy hyacinths to feed the soul."
~ Muslih-uddin Saadi
This last week whenever I step outside I am arrested by their heady perfume.
As it washes over me I stand still, breathe deep and release a joyful sigh before carrying on with my day.
Be still and know that I am God
Take time to look around and see
The beauty blooming everywhere
All nature speaks of Me.
