Heaven on Earth
I live in this place, Heaven on Earth. The sun comes up in the East with the promise of another wonderful day. I see my horses out in the early pasture, enjoying every bite of green grass, hay no longer interests them. The birds started their morning with joyful songs. I am hopeful that the bluebirds continue their nest building in a box nearby, I eagerly watch their progress.
A cup of coffee in hand I venture out with the dogs in the wet dewy grass. I am bare foot, to feel the cold wet grass and feel every sensation startling me awake. I'm alive this spring morning in April. Rejoice! This is what I have been waiting for, Spring! It is unusually mild this spring, the windows and doors are thrown open, spring is in the air and I enhale it's fragrances.
My flowers are so beautiful this morning, the tulips and baby iris are so pretty together among my stacked stones. I see trees starting to leaf out and thank them for their shelter, I cannot wait to hang the hammock under those leaves and take an afternoon nap.
I must snap out of it, this little moment of blissfulness. What am I thinking! I must get the studio ready! There will be thirty to fifty people coming today in a Coach Bus to visit my gourd studio! Oh, my. I have much to do before they arrive on this beautiful spring day. I have meandered long enough with my coffee in hand! I don't want to leave my wonderful morning solitude....... And yet, I love that I will have visitors coming to my place, Heaven on Earth.
