Spring 2009

Today is the first day of Spring.  The ocean was calm with occasional waves turning over like blue pages.  This ginger caught my attention.  It's stalks are 12 ft tall, but the flowers are almost 3 ft off the ground.  It was hidden, by the wall, and from the distance they look like red torches.  Outside I hear king birds, and other birds, like jazz musicians.  I am grateful for this moment.
The Caribbean has its magical moments, and this flower is one of them.
