☻♥ ☻ Hi! ☻♥ ☻
On the back porch, there hangs a strawberry plant. It's been there for weeks. I keep looking at it, talking to it, and wondering when it will give birth to bright red fruits. Two days ago, I found an infant strawberry. It was green like an olive and shaped like an upside down triangle. I knew it wasn't ready for pulling or snacking on, so I waited a few days. . . . .
Then yesterday arrived and I found something quite magical! My baby green strawberry reached adulthood! I went outside to water flowers and sitting there, staring me down, was a beautiful bright red fruit! I took the strawberry, kissed it myself, and then shared it with my Mom and Carter.
Each little nibble tasted like candy for the tongue.
Nothing is quite as sweet as fresh fruits growing in the backyard!
Today I feel like I've been doing a lot of uphill crawling. Physically and mentally. I have dreams as large as the Caspian sea, and all I seem to do is move across the daily commute instead of across the
world. If my dreams did come true, I'd be turning up toes in sand-rimmed waters everyday, with berry stained hands and the smell of apple wood in the air. Instead all I do is nap, wonder, eat, see my dogs, say hello's, look out windows and write stories. I don't want to be a tenant of habit anymore.
It's been raining here for days and I know the fair sun will soon arrive to dry the crops and feed the pale skinned. Sometimes it's just hard to watch the days travel on without doing much about it. Maybe I should stop looking through National Geographic everyday. I'm sure pictures of faraway places will not help my current condition.
When the sun returns, I know I'll be pleased as punch, and I'll probably forget I ever complained about this daily commute I'm on. The sun is always the best medicine for my restlessness or my blues.
I may be wearing a long face and carrying the "I want to be the person in this national geographic photo" attitude today but I know it wont last long. There is something big happening for me when June ends, I can't tell you yet, but it's wonderful!
Now with the rain and all, I thought it'd be fitting to bring out my rainbow on the only sunny day of the week. Dresses like this give us reasons to dream, don't they.....
