New life bursts forth from translucent red pomegranate tips on the branches of the handkerchief tree and I stand surrounded by a choir of lilac leaves as they open soft, furry, almost-purple buds and unfurl into delicate new leaves with blushed red tips sounding their notes to the warm bright spring sky 

I am captivated, lifted, taken, 

“I’ll show you how it’s enough”, says Rumi

Here in the middle of the afternoon

God’s wind breath blows through the Reed-flute world in front of my eyes.
