As if it were an Assignment


No matter how late in the season,
late in the day,
late in your life,
Walk outside and water your garden
Deadhead your petunias
Make room for blossoms.

No matter how long you have neglected Life,
days or decades,
Return.
Begin again.
Take the step across the threshold and stay out there for a while,
As if it were an assignment.
Don't come in until the day is done.

This is what I experienced today.
