Spring…

Posted in Where Angels Perch with tags , , , on April 23, 2011 by rodzink

The morning has not fully arrived… but the colony of martins that have invaded our stoop… have announced the certainty of daybreak…  The house is quite…still… for the time…. The kids are upstairs and I crept up to simply look at them for a moment…as I’ve done thousands of times between this day and all the yesterdays that have defined their young lives….  Faranah is sleeping soundly…..the new life inside her whispers fables of creation….and shares every flutter and thought…prayer and song….of “Mummy.”  Capable, deliberate, thoughtful…loving hands….

…. and this wonderful day will begin…and end…. in a design engineered an eternity ago….. This morning’s breeze… allowing it to clear the unnecessary… make room for tomorrow…for yesterday, I was weary… and today…. today is another day.. another gift… And what shall I give to today in return…

Sharing my pre-dawn moments….coffee…. ee cummings… the feel of my childrens’ good-night hugs still on my neck… the eyes of my wife as she drifted to sleep…. a whisper to the child still clinging to the comforting finger of God…. Spring is here… called forth… from a dormant earth.. today has purpose… just like yesterday…tomorrow….  I do not own today… I simply.. and faithfully… share her space… tread on her good will… and embrace the things around me….
