The unfolding


This afternoon
the rain was kissing the earth
softly
and the lingering
smell of fresh love
was tantalizing

as we watched and waited
for the story to unfold
to see how earth
would open herself up
to the elements
we heard the sound
of one hand clapping

and we waited
and the story unfolded
and we were in the middle
of it
alive, receptive
and quite simply
mesmerized by the
wondrous unwrapping
of a treasure
