Mystical Monday, Hafiz and what he never heard the sun say

at the end of the day, do you celebrate what created awe in your waking hours?  How about today, what happened?

as for me. I sat back and watched a horticulture student, who would never be placed in my physics class, do what any good scientist would do... play with lab materials and examine what happened.




The Sun Never Says

Even

after
all this time

the sun never says to the Earth,


"You owe me."


Look

what happens

with a love like that--


it lights the whole
world.

  1. As I watered my vegetable garden this morning, I watched some caterpillars eat my fennel plant. I'm in awe of such an appetite!
