Good Day, God!
I love yellow trees! Maybe, God, my next car should be yellow instead of red? Speaking of cars, Bright Yellow Trees have been tempting me to try to take photos from my car. Yikes!
The gold trees that bloomed in February were on Hawaii Kai Drive so I could just pull over on my way home. I would stop the car and take the photos. But, these glorious trees are on Kalanianaole highway! It’s not possible to pull over.
Driving back from the Farmers’ Market last Saturday I once again was filled with PhotoLust at the sight of these yellow trees. It came to me that if I got in the left turn lane I might have a few seconds to take photos of these trees before the green arrow! It was only a few seconds, but still very satisfying.
However, after my jewelry class (metal fabrication) on Tuesday I realized that there are Yellow Trees on the campus. I had to stand on a bench to get closer and it still wasn’t close enough to suit me.
I’m not sure what my “hunger” for yellow trees means, God. Perhaps, nothing? Or maybe it is just an over-the-top delight in color? I am also enchanted by the green parrots that I saw flying around (wild) this morning while visiting June, my Spiritual Friend/Director.
Tomorrow, God, I am off with my husband Kit to fly to Boston for him to run the Boston Marathon. There will be flowers in Boston . . . and surely flowering trees. And I will love them. Ah, but God, they will not be this Brilliant Yellow!
Those pastel flowering trees will not be for me a modern day version of the Burning Bush as these Yellow Trees are. I can almost hear the Yellow Trees calling me — Come Near! Take off your shoes. This is Holy Ground. I AM here!
And, of course, God, YOU are here! Thank YOU!
