12:23 pm - Earth Day 2012
On this Earth Day, 22 April 2012, I celebrate 22 natural things I love:

1)monkey-face pansies
2)the sweet scent of rain in a dry land
3)old climbing roses, red
4)red Oklahoma dirt after light rain
5)granite boulders piled high and loose
6)the curves of a river cutting its way to the sea
7)incoming tide crashing over rocks, white spray dancing
8)sunlight through leaves
9)prickly-pear in bloom
10)ocotillo in bloom
11)palm fronds fluttering in thunderstorm wind
12)moss on stones
13)tallgrass prairie, wind-blown, under a deep-summer sky
14)the smell of the first cold front in autumn
15)alligator sliding down off a berm into the river [NOTE: as long as I am far, far away]
16)antelope in the West Texas desert
17)orangeflowers
18)the gleam of pebbles under running water
19)thunderheads in the desert
20)coyotes [NOTE: off running, not in my yard]
21)spring sunsets, gold gold gold
22)the Thames

Wishing for natural goodness for you on this Earth Day!
