The Tiny Bud
Our second Mountain Democrat column of 2016 has been published this year (April 25, 2016) ~ “The Tiny Bud” ~ written by Marcia Rose.
Excerpt: “I walk out to my patio taking a deep breath. The air smells wonderful, it is a cool but beautiful day and the mist of rain is in the air. I smile.
The grass has returned now bright and vibrate green and each tree is ready to renew its leaves. I bend down to replace a flower garden trinket blown away by the wind and notice a tiny bud reaching out of the earth. It barely breaks through the soil and I marvel at its will to brave the years of drought and still flourish. As I touch the tiny leaf I think that this bud would not be able to push through the earth each year if it were not for the foundation that was planted long ago.”
