Moments of Joy

She’s a bud
in the winter months,
a promise
of spring that unchills
mood and flesh and us.

Our world (and body, in the case of some of us) is in chaos: war, COVID, humans being inhuman… But the universe keeps sprouting moments of joy. Look for them (and share).

  5. Love the emerging beauty! My orchid has buds!!!! Sadness here as a friend passed from Covid earlier in the week. No underlying illness, normal body weight. War in Europe and war against a pandemic keep us on edge.

    2. You know, that's one of the things I fear most about COVID... unpredictability. We never know how it's going to affect us. Sigh.

  7. We all wait impatiently for spring here, for rolling green hills and earth turned to receive the seeds to grow again.

    May the bulb bring an explosion of color.

  8. I agree Maga, it's never been more important than now to keeping looking for those moments of joy (however short-lived some might be) and share them with one another. <3

  9. There's always something hopeful about the budding of new green. It's one of my favorite late winter - early spring things to do, go out and hunt for growth.
