The simplicity of Grass
Waking up this morning,the rain falling, made me think, the grass will grow and then what,it needs to be cut. Thinking this over,I thought of all of the wonderful things as well as the negative things about grass. How I love the fresh smell of grass after it's cut ,but hate to rake it. Oh! what a ticklish sensation I get while walking barefooted on the grass. Animals love to run and play in the grass. It's also food for many animals. Watching my husband roll in the grass while playing with the dogs, gives me a chuckle. Watching children, especially my grandchild, running in the grass with wind blowing,faces gleaming,giggles heard as "Catch Me if you Can",between adult and child. If we didn't have grass, my fondest memory of watching my husband rolling in the grass with our 5 dogs, would leave a void. Without grass there would be no longer"a carpet of green" adding extra color to the flowers in bloom. Henry Miller, once was quoted as saying " The moment one gives close attention to anything even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."When you are outside or looking through a window,do you ever think about the simplicity of Grass, it's importance to our world?
