Among the rows and rows for sale
you drew my attention
dozens of flowered stems bursting upward
green leaves hastening to match them in number,
effusive blooms, all in pink.

To Bless Yourself

Post image for To Bless Yourself

by Viktoria Vidali on February 8, 2013

in Quotations

If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy,
and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs,
is more elastic, more starry, more immortal— that is your success.
All nature is your congratulation,
and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself.

~ Thoreau

[Monet waited four years for his water garden at Giverny to bloom before immortalizing it in paintings like Water Lilies: Night Effect.]
