Artist’s palate

As winter wears on us
cold and white
(Not that it is cold in white in California)
Is this not a delight
it makes me want to sing
seriously, it does
dabbles of delicate, soft colors
tiny brush strokes of whimsy
Mother Nature 
was working with her spring palate
when she created this beauty

Lilic Breasted Roller

And to watch him fly
through this field of tall grasses
the striking color against the golden stalks 
as they rustled in the wind

One of those moments when the meaning of life is held on the head of a pin
to breathe deeply and inhale the ecstasy of the present moment
