Marianne and I often walked in parks in Charlotte, specifically McAlpine Creek and Reedy Creek, and after she died I continued the tradition. But I allowed myself to become so busy, and for quiet some time never got to a park on the weekend. On Easter Sunday this year I returned to McAlpine Creek, and today–the first day of a little “staycation”–I went back again, and I am glad I did!
A Song of Earth and Sky The sky, clouds and the silky moon I hear a song inside my heart The bright berries in the tree The rustle of wind The disappearing snow The birdsong and muted sound of traffic Peepers, even, so early in the year. The moment is special For I feel you with me, my love We share the beauty of earth and sky My heart is blessed.
