may day

today is
blue,
giggling,
garden fresh,
with lily of the valleys,
tastes of garlic and beetroot and carrot,
smells of strawberries stewing
an untangle of snow peas
softness of grass underfoot -
the sound of words:
"your greatest work of art is your own life"
lived, refreshed, pulled-apart, gathered, shared,
today is
may.
