how everything glistens

a sunny morning
after a rainy night
after a rainy week
after a rainy month
we sip coffee
and look out into the garden
water droplets cling to stems and leaves and trellises
catching little rainbows of sunshine
tiny, shimmering stars
a constellation
constantly changing
as the sun picks its way along a familiar path through the tangled branches of live oaks
and birds jostle the green of the garden searching for breakfast
sending sprays of meteors to the earth
“how everything glistens”, you say
yes
and between our two hearts also
flows and lingers such radiance
shining out into the world
illuminating this new dream we share
how glorious it is
how full of wonder
how everything glistens
