In the NW this week.

From Blossoms

From blossoms comes
this brown paper bag of peaches
we bought from the boy
at the bend in the road where we turned toward
signs painted Peaches.

From laden boughs, from hands,
from sweet fellowship in the bins,
comes nectar at the roadside, succulent
peaches we devour, dusty skin and all,
comes the familiar dust of summer, dust we eat.

O, to take what we love inside,
to carry within us an orchard, to eat
not only the skin, but the shade,
not only the sugar, but the days, to hold
the fruit in our hands, adore it, then bite into
the round jubilance of peach.

There are days we live
as if death were nowhere
in the background; from joy
to joy to joy, from wing to wing,
from blossom to blossom to
impossible blossom, to sweet impossible blossom.

A slow ramble along the water tonight. (more in my stories!)

Spent the afternoon frolicking in the garden and catching up on life and work with favorite ladies @christineshoots and @gamma_f_o_l_k. A little pause with friends in a lush green spot truly does the spirit good!

More inspired than ever to devote myself in service to safety and happiness for us all on this incredible planet. Come, let's celebrate #InterdependenceDay! ✨🌍✨
