In a neighbour’s garden we saw more signs of Spring, Hellebores, delicate and lovely.
I discovered another poem that appealed to me today – the last two lines sum up the way I ‘look about me and about me without end’ finding the beautiful things that are all around us.
THE WORLD’S A MINEFIELD
—Iain Crichton Smith
The world’s a minefield when I think of you.
I must walk carefully in case I touch
some irretrievable and secret switch
that blows the old world back into the new.
How careless I once was about this ground
with the negligence of ignorance. Now I take
the smallest delicate steps and now I look
about me and about me without end.
You may remember that I sent some SallyBoots to Germany a couple of weeks ago for our new Grand Niece. Today we received a photo of her looking lovely in her new boots.

d’em are booties, you do good work in alot of ways…..Hellebores new to me, am guess they don’t do well in cold zones.
The poem, well a tad big for a bumper sticker, but fits well in a mind.

Thank you for your appreciation and that last comment especially, I love the idea of the poem being a good fit for a mind. 🙂
