“The strongest of all warriors are these two — Time and Patience.”― Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace
Long cold winter, slow time.
Spring rains, transition time.
Early summer breezes, threshold time.
Lead us to July.
To colors we didn’t know existed.
The middle of summer.
Plenty to still enjoy, do, not do.
Sit, stay, savor and savor while it’s here.
No looking back nor ahead.
In today alone.
Time, patience, effort, new beginnings.
Happy things like flowers.
“A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them.” – Liberty Hyde Bailey
