Every day, a photograph, a poem. The skies are clear today and the morning temperatures perfect for a walk in Cole Park, one of our daily choices together.
We walk across the foot bridge to the memorial to the first mayor for whom the park is named, then turn left up around the once-filled-with-kids-swimming-but-now-filled-with-sand pool, and as we turned the corner on the far side, there– beyond the water droplets sparkling in the freshly watered lawn [thanks to our excellent park manager]– gently waved the stems of tall lavender, shining in the sunlight, a beautiful sight teeming with life, I’m sure you’ll agree:
Lavender In The Park
Five foot tall stems toppedSheri Edwards
in delicate purple blooms,
serene and lovely—
yet bursting with life: cafe
for the bees and butterflies.
