Today, I experienced no less than
a perfect afternoon.
The sky was bigger than life,
and the clouds
and the mountains.
Everything was swathed in luxurious bolts of green grass.
It all looked especially miraculous.
I spent all day under high canopies of leaves,
in secret nooks between evergreen trees,
adventuring on roofs.
A blue bird flew into a tunnel,
and I ran after to see what it would do.
It was warm and breezy.
I got a hot dog for lunch,
an ice cream cone,
which dripped all over me.
And I laughed.
Everything was full of wonder,
and I let it touch me.
