Banishing the dankness of the grey rain cloud, Oh! how the sun blazes away...
The flowers dance in the garden, the tomatoes redden on their vine.
and the fat pigeon swings precariously on a twig of pine...
In the midst of this beautiful morn, I must write - at my laptop's
beck and call!
But then I seem to be a writer - Oh! dear and all...
So the sun it sings a new happy song...
Me I write, while my heart sings along
And so I am grateful for all I am blessed with and all that is to come.
I am grateful to be part of nature's melodious hum.
