Someone planted row upon row of corn in the hilly field by the small pond across the street. As I was quietly strolling along early this morning, watching my little part of the world wake up, I noticed how full of life the field had become. It was seemingly empty and barren just last month, with bare ground and brown weeds. Very dead. Now with fresh green sprouts (they're about three feet tall now), the field has come alive! The soft morning sunlight made the green stalks glisten, and there was a very gentle breeze -- barely noticeable if one wasn't purposefully noticing. The up and coming stalks were delicately swaying in the summer breeze; very delighted to be the ones to occupy that space!
