Day 682: Blooming

Is there anything more beautiful than a rose? And in this month of newly-bloomed roses, is there anything nicer than taking the time to enjoy them?

How Perfectly - Mary Oliver

How perfectly
    and neatly
      opens the pink rose

this bright morning,
    the sun warm
      on my shoulders,

its heat
    on the opening petals.

it is the smallest,
    the least important event
      at this moment

in the whole world.
    Yet I stand there,
      utterly happy.
