100 Words

She stood in a field of wildflowers.
Daisies mostly, but others too.
And decided that not knowing, in
no way detracted from their beauty.
Or how uplifted she felt, her body
following the trajectory of the sun.

Tears welled in her eyes.
Joy held her in an unseen web.
Arms reaching out and up,
her heart so open that the breeze
passed right through her radiant self.

Life gives us these moments
over and over and over again.
But you must get yourself to the field
and let the flowers bloom in your heart.
Welcoming the warmth on your face.
