Earth Laughing

It’s been a week of up and down – back and forth with Centrelink, second round of injections, resulting pain… it’s a good time to inject some laughter!

There’s a quote that says, “Earth laughs in flowers”, from a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson. In context, it’s not so warm and fuzzy, but as a separate line, it has a happy ring to it.
One of our neighbours has had some tall, green plants growing in their garden. With the recent rain, they’d grown straight and tall, but still just green. I’d thought they could be weeds, until one day, on my way to pick up the mail, I saw a lone flower smiling up at me…

Since then, more have popped up, and I wander past each day so I can smile back 😉

It’s been good to remember that the earth is smiling, in this season of rain and growth… and that somewhere, some time,  the sun is still shining.
