we inherit that which
we value most:
intimacy with you,
or eternity with ourselves.
the texture of velvet brushing your fingertips. the sweet, healthy scent of spearmint. the lively, energetic shades of green. the way the light plays with the same color and makes a spectrum of shades. the design and detail of each leaf. the perfect baby buds.
I love harvesting from our tea patch. And this time I brought in a whole armload and crammed it into a bucket. Before we could start picking off the leaves, though, I had to attempt to catch the beauty that I saw in them. It was mesmerizing to study these leaves! I’m learning from theses photos to stop and not only notice, but enjoy, the things that are beautiful. Also, when I am crushed or placed in hot water, can I give off a sweet scent and be a nourishing drink? This is way challenging.
