Each new day the sun’s fist opens with an invitation,
and I ask,
shut it out,
or embrace it?
Do I stay inside, or…
hurry half dressed and barefoot into the garden!
Forsythias dropping their yellow flowers, green leaves appearing,
Vibrant red and pink azaleas,
on sturdy stems, boldly showing their delicate flowers.
The white lilac bursting forth,
with it’s sweet fragrance.
I Breathe, looking up at a clear blue sky,
with open hands in gratitude and a happy heart,
ready for the day ahead.
