Sunshine Came Softly Through My Window
Waited all winter for those long summer days when sunrise lasts for fifteen hours. I waited in front of the French doors to the deck and longingly looked out toward the bay for it to rise and spread its arms over the water.
Alas it arrives. And from its predestined position pulls open the sky, pleasantly punctual, in harmony with the moon, the flowers standing at attention.
By noon, all living creatures are delighted and doused with warm rays–even the trees spread their arms in reverence and
the cats appear to show their respect–if only for a short while,
trance-like the families follow suit.
By late afternoon, I am still trying to soak in the rays, a solar-powered person. Reborn.
*Due to this wretched cold, this post is a reblog. Feeling somewhat normal today (if that is at all possible), and might be able to get some photos today. Good weekend, good weather to all!
