When I raised the window shade this morning
I saw the White Lilac was in bloom.
I opened the bedroom window and closed my eyes.
I did my morning meditation to its
The White Lilac grows on the east side of my house.
A fellow gardener gave me a tiny slip from her bush 18-20 years ago.
I left the window open.
I cut a couple of sprays for the house.
I cut one for my hair.
The smell of White Lilac is intoxicating.
