delight by Angela Riggs

the sun shines not on us, but in us
the tall grasses wave gently in welcome
meandering paths lead us in new twists and turns
and surprise us with bursts of color

like wildflowers, we raise our faces to the sun
which shines on us, and in us
until there is no ‘person’ and ‘sun’,
but a delicious warm melding of hearts and cores
(the heart of the sun, the core of my being)

and the flowers
and trees
and grasses
revel (delight) (rejoice) in my gentle warmth
as I am delighted by them

angela riggs – My eyes are green, my hair is red, and I freckle. I am a partner, happily in love with my best friend. I am a photographer, trying to capture the stories of my life. I am an optimist, and I believe that my heart can always expand to hold one more. I am an explorer, adventuring through the wild and wonderful Pacific Northwest. I am a teacher, encouraging children to learn and wonder about the world.
