The perfection of today

"Today is the greatest day I've ever known" — William Patrick Corgan

dark red juicy strawberries,
sweet sugary nougat,
fresh cut grass,
the polarized sun setting, splintering golden light through a naked tree;

Cheering on our Aussie Olympians in basketball and swimming in between bouts of work,
the peace of side streets hemmed by arterial roads,
imperfect pink flowers more beautiful with their flaws than perfection;

A flash of anger celebrated not shunned,
the end of work and beginning of holidays,
leaving work in the dying daylight not darkness,
a heart that is open and swells with growing joy.

And love,
always love.
