morning in the garden

trimming basil
I hum Vivaldi
oboe concerto in C
unimportant which one

except it is fluttering joy
out the window

and now I need to know
exactly which
of his minuets

circles and rests lightly
like that butterfly, there
tasting roses

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    so short and yet so sweet. I like that expression “fluttering joy”. Between stillness and fluttering joy, I choose the latter. Thanks for this!

    A Vivaldi earworm? Hey, could be much, much worse! You are so cute.
