Four O'clock Saturday

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.

It's 3:55.
In five minutes it will happen.
Does anyone ever see it?
Do you know what it brings?

Two minutes more.
Soon enough with not a minute to spare.
It's 4:00!
As the clock strikes four, four o'clock flowers surrender to fully open themselves and bloom.

Mysterious things occur when they don't bloom. If they aren't blooming, they are likely napping and need some water to remind them.

Theirs is the true heart, a kindred spirit that awakens with fresh awareness each day to shine ever present in themselves.

So should you become thirsty remember to always water the four o'clocks and take a drink from the hose.

As your thirst is quenched remember it's okay to give thanks to the whispering four o'clocks.

For by the light of the moon they brighten the way forward for kindred lovers.

(Disclaimer: Drink from a garden hose at your own risk. If you're old fashion like me, you did it as a kid and didn't suffer any ill side effects)
