A Perfect Day In The Northwest
by Life is a Dance Regardless
Age Group: Adult
I sit cross-legged on my Technicolor pillow
Lulled by the sound of the rain
Even though the Sun shines through the clouds
And from my Technicolor pillow
I observe my garden
I have nurtured my garden
My sage, rosemary, and thyme
They have miraculously survived the winter cold
And wake as the light returns
What will my garden look like this summer?
I want corn, butternut and acorn squash
I want tomatoes
I want to add basil to my herb garden
And marigolds to the front walk
I want to eat blueberries, grapes, figs and apples
All the wonderful things we already have thriving
I really must cut back the blackberry vines
Stop them from attacking my figs
As I sit on my Technicolor pillow
I observe my life
My ability to show people their strength
The ways in which they change my life
I have planted seeds and watched them grow
And those seeds that have grown within myself
I can feel them reaching towards the light
I was loved and nurtured by my own friends and family
And now, dear heart, it is time for me to pass that love on to you
I have played many parts in my time
I have acted as therapist, sister, friend, and lover
Daughter, companion, doting aunt
My love, I am to give you the best gift I have to give
I give of myself
I will be here whenever you need me
Whatever you need
Ask it of me
Though it is my duty to you, my love
It is my pleasure to give precisely what you need
I have nurtured
But you, my love, must understand that you are your own flower
I can only provide warmth, water, and light
You are my love
And my Technicolor pillow
Will act as our magic carpet
As I take you on a journey of discovery
Discovery of yourself
And by the end you will have bloomed
More beautiful and more unique than any flower I’ve seen
Because I love you
Author's Notes: I began thinking of my age, 19 years, and just how much I had really achieved with it. I've done so much and been so much. I was thinking of how angry I've been getting at people who tell me I know nothing about life, simply because I have not existed as long as they have. I wanted to write something that might make me feel tranquil, accomplished, and accepting, rather than hurt and angry. I know who I am and I know what I am capable of. No one, not even an elder who disrespects my abilities can take that away from me.
