A moment today with my spirit...

It doesn't have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch
a few words together and don't try
to make them elaborate, this isn't
a contest but the doorway
into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.

I used to live in California (Castaic area by Magic Mountain). This shot reminds me of the hills right before Goreman Pass as it would appear each March. It looks just like it! Was this photo taken in that area?
