Mid Spring 2021

My countryside floweth over…

“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”

And they continue to bloom…

It is spring again. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.

That is one good thing about this world–there are always sure to be more springs.
