"Spring Fragrances..."

I breathe them all in...
deeply.
Blossom-laden orchard boughs,
sweet and fluttery yet strong and rich with
promise...
Old fashioned flower gardens,
palettes now popping awake with cheeriness and
hues of hope...
Endless acreages of country fields,
freshly plowed,
moist clumps of bountiful blackness
greeting each sunrise...
Each of these
is pure aromatherapy for my spirit.
A potpourri of these memories will remain
safely bottled away forever
in my Midwest heart of hearts.
Ahhh!

“A perfectly healthy sentence, it is true, is extremely rare.
For the most part
we miss the hue and fragrance of the thought;
as if
we could be satisfied
with the dews of the morning or evening
without their colors,
or
the heavens without their azure.”
~Henry David Thoreau
