April 6 The Hush of Spring


Recommended Posts

The Hush of Spring

Welcome to my garden
I've waited long for your arrival
Please join me on my walk.

Can you smell it?
Lemon and honeysuckle
have scented the ocean air.
I invite you to breathe in
its salient clarity,
fill your lungs with its goodness.

Can you hear it?
Our California Quail are cooing,
their low-throated call in harmony
with the fall of our footsteps
cushioned by damp blades of grass
under our feet, as we stroll.

Can you feel it?
The gentle cool air brings a slight chill
but the April sun tempers and warms
while the hush of the morning invites us
to pause, sit, and simply be.

Can you see it?
Yellow daffodils surround us and smile,
their buttery petals soaking in
the coolness of an early spring sun.
I can't help but smile back.

I'm pleased you are here with me.
We can remain here as long as you like.

Brought me from my perch on the East Coast to my old roost on the West.


We can remain here as long as you like

made me laugh.

TY Judi!
