Dear Yellow Flowers

Dear Yellow Flowers,

I’m writing this note to thank you for the beauty you bring to this world.  I don’t know if it is your intention to do this, but I want you to know how grateful we are for the gift you give us.  It is so encouraging to know that, with the bursts of human kindness during this fearful time, you line the roadways and paint the meadows so that we might dare to smile and breathe in the fragrance of courage.

Sitting with you feels so much better than sitting with videos and computers and the endless sounds of opinions and theories and accusations.  You are a gift from the Source of Life, an embrace and a reminder that loveliness lives all around us.  When I saw you today, I remembered.  And when I sat with you in the warm sun, I became, just for a moment, a part of the great announcement.

Thank you, dear Yellow Flowers.  You make the journey hopeful.  You cause the world to smile.

With deep appreciation,

    The yellow flowers bring joy and hope to our day. Now the yellow flowers are giving way to yellow trees.
