A Kiss Like No Other.

There is something magical about walking along the river in the early evening of a warm Spring day.

Magical.

Mystical.

Mysterious.

Birds twitter in trees, the soft trill of some unknown (to me) species. The chattering of the chickadees mixing with the gossiping of squirrels. Ducks quacking from the middle of the river where they float lazily by while overhead, geese fly low, honking and calling out to one another.

Divine.

Delightful.

Delicious.

Leaves rustle on trees as if, released from the tightness of their buds, they have much to share about winter days gone by. Grasses turn green, eyeing one another as they whisper amongst themselves the secrets they’ve dug up from deep within their roots.

Luscious.

Luminous.

Light.

Fairy dancers spinning tales of magic on sun-dappled water. A fisherman casting his line out where he stands, thigh deep, in the running waters. A fish jumps just out of the water, splashes down as if to say to the erstwhile fisherman, “Catch me if you can!”.

Stories woven out of air, spun upon a gentle breeze catching a whiff of something exotic simmering on the fire where a family gathers to share time spent laughing and playing and eating by the river.

And I walk along the river’s edge and Beaumont chases the ball and stops to sniff some unknown scent and then he lets the ball fall into the water and he follows it with a splash into the river and I sit on the bank and watch and smile and listen and savour the pure delight of being alive in this moment right now.

This is spring in the city. My viewpoint focused to this moment in time where I sit and watch the world float by. No destination. No To Do list calling. No ‘have to’s’ waiting.

Just being. Here. Now.

This is all there is.

Love.

Joy.

Beauty.

Life.

  1. This was divine, Louise.
    I felt all of it because it was familiar, in a sense. It is what goes through me when I take my walks.
    Springtime in the city? Definitely not a city centre!

    • It is so… comforting and… calming to think that as we both walk, we carry that same sense with us. ❤ How lovely.
      And… we are 15 – 20 minutes from the city centre 🙂 Calgary's forest canopy is vast and the river winds right through downtown – one of my favourite runs used to be to leave the Y downtown, hit the trail along the river and run west to the bridge (the one I sit and watch from my desk now) and back downtown — it was a 15 km run

  2. I love these lines- they made me smile- “Leaves rustle on trees as if, released from the tightness of their buds, they have much to share about winter days gone by. Grasses turn green, eyeing one another as they whisper to one another the secrets they’ve dug up from deep within their roots.”

    Nice hanging out with you on the river’s edge. ❤️

    • So lovely to have your beautiful essence and spirit with me Lilli Ann — and – thank you for sharing that — I see when I read them back like that how I can tighten them a bit! Which is a lovely gift. ❤
