A balm for the soul

On what was quickly turning into a sad & lonely evening,
instead of staying in and feeling sorry for myself
I decided to grab my camera and head outside.

What I found out there took my breath away:

a lovely chorus of crickets;

the warm glow of an orange sunset;

the peppery scent of marigolds;

a kind word from a stranger;

the rich smell of damp earth;

and hearts drawn on the sidewalk.

Once again I found my way back onto the path and felt renewed.
