Small Glories

Lotus frog


“It takes great deal of courage to see the world in all its tainted glory, and still to love it.”
― Oscar Wilde


What a beautiful day

at last

patience waited and received its reward

clear blue skies

with a few frail clouds

wafting across the infinite blue

Sun high

scorching in its heat

yet not burning its house down

the natural world finally embraced

its Summer rhythm

which had been delayed by

storm after storm

sure there were still problems

which such fine weather could not deny or delete

but it offered a moment

of reveling in glories


tiny details

where happiness abides
