Gifts in the Ordinary

The roads are ordinary, the same routes followed, but this week they held:

Blooms from the peach and pear trees, bright purple from the Japenese Maple and the truest yellow of spring in the forsythia. Blooms everywhere...
Hawks floating on the breeze...
Cars with white dots of flower petals stuck from the wind and the rain...
A class of kindergarteners playing follow the leader (the teacher), outside and around the school... huge steps followed by 20 blue topped children doing bunny hops... 
Grass blades beginning to turn green...
I love it, Spring is here!
