Haiku My Heart i invite you to imagine living in peace one day at a time I have to admit that I'm finding it hard to celebrate the birthday of my country having declared its independence from Mother England, when the country was founded on institutionalized slavery, the idea that white men were created equal but but black men were less than and women weren't even considered. We tend to glorify the "all men are created equal" phrase without looking at the reality. We can do better. We must.
Daffodils are pushing up, tall and green and just beginning to show their blossom color. Peony shoots of bright red peek out of the ground, as if they're tempting the deer to snack on them. But today, there was a ten minute hail storm, so noisy the dogs were disturbed, leaving a coating of white on the ground and clinging to the skylights. One thing I know, spring will be here soon. The bird symphony and the evening frog chorus are heralds.
