it's not just the way the light shines at once on and through the water

or the way all the colors of its surroundings seem to dance within the stream

not merely the vibrant colors and contrasts of clay pot and bright, broad leaves

nor the way the soil sparkles darkly in its saturation

neither is it the rich smell of wet soil, or even the subtle hose-pipe/watering-can smell of cool water

it is standing in the sunlight, these sensations coming at me all at once; it is that which makes this my favorite part of the day.
