Lilacs


Today Cassie and I passed a lilac bush. Lilacs bring fond memories for both of us, so we picked a branch and brought it with us up to the field. As we sat there watching the baseball game, I grew tired of it quickly. I started forcing the un-bloomed flowers open, so I could smell more of the lovely fragrance.
But that’s just the thing. I was forcing those flowers open. They weren’t ready to bloom. It wasn’t their time.
Maybe if I waited, they’d smell better.
