Laughing flowers

Imagination, Day 25

“Hello, sun in my face. Hello you who made the morning and spread it over the fields…Watch, now, how I start the day in happiness, in kindness.”
― Mary Oliver

Laughter is contagious.

Share it often and freely.

For doing so brightens the light that shines from inside you

The light which feeds your ageless youth.                         

Yesterday a single flower

Found the light of the slowly setting sun,

And its radiance entered my awareness

Making me laugh.

In a day or two, the smiling flower will be gone—

Gone to live with the butterflies and other free spirits.

But I will remember that before it left,

The flower shared a bit of laughter with me.

Tonight, I will enjoy the beauty of the darkness

Knowing that the sun will rise tomorrow

I will laugh with the flowers

And plant some new ones.

I lost my vocal cords a while back due to throat cancer. The laryngectomy sent me on a quest to find and learn to use my new, altered voice. I am able to talk now with a really small and neat new prosthesis. My writing reflects what I have learned in my search for a voice. My site johnschulzauthor.com publishes a daily motivational quote and a personal comment. I write an article a week for my blog, johntheplantman.com which deals with a lot of the things that I do in the garden. I am also the author of Requiem for a Redneck and the new Redemption for a Redneck--novels portraying the lives and doings of folks around the north Georgia hills. I have an English Education degree from the University of Georgia and very happily married to the lovely Dekie Hicks. You may enjoy my daily Quotes and Notes at http://johnschulzauthor.com/
