The last few months I have learned to be open to possibilities. That I can’t control the outcomes, but I can choose to be open to miracles and the unexpected. My world has been filled with unexpected delights! Sometimes, the thing you are seeking…

is not the thing that brings you the most delight.

True, Trilliums make me smile,
but Skunk Cabbage (or as my professor likes to call them; Swamp Lanterns) delights my soul!!! They are just such a bright spot in the darkness of the forest floor… why I love to call them Swamp Lanterns… and yet, their perfume won’t allow me to forget their other common name.

a door, once closed, suddenly opened…
I stepped closer… my mind whirled…
it offered what I thought I wanted…
possibilities drew me closer…
my heart hesitated…

another stepped in front and entered…
she offered what they needed…
the door closed behind her.

there I stood, looking at the door…
questions filling my mind… my soul
why was I drawn to this door… why did I hesitate?
and why did its closing cast darkness on my world?

the door had distracted me…
pulled my focus from what I really sought…
as I turned away, my attention was drawn upwards…
an open window caught my eye… and caused my heart to soar…

it filled my world with light… and hope…
old dreams came back into focus… delighting my soul…
there are questions still unanswered, but I know which direction…
