Equinox

“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.”

― Rainer Maria Rilke

Pink Tulip…Spring Equinox

Today I walked in sleet falling from low dark clouds, passing by daffodils and beneath full blooming Japanese Magnolias and breathed in their sweetness. It is the Equinox today and I truly felt I was teetering on the fulcrum between Winter and Spring. As I balanced I danced and giggled and tilted my face toward the sky and tasted the icy crystals at the same time I inhaled the scent of Promise. I felt full of delight. It only lasted a moment and yet is was one of those “everlasting” moments, and so I carefully wrapped it in shiny metallic paper with a sheen of violet and silver and placed it carefully away in a secret and magical place in my heart. I know one day I will, with a smile and a tear, unwrap it, and remember.
