For today, the skies have cleared, the sun is shining !
Rays of light -- luscious, bright rays -- are brightening our world again.
~ When it's not always rainin'..there'll be days like like this ~
(Please play for full effect of how great today feels.)
Daffodil and narcissus, crocus and pansy, all blooming. Birds greedily grab fat worms from our bounteous flooded bog of a back yard...
...tendrils of warmth reach my bones.
For the first time in over six months -- six months -- the temperature shyly dances toward seventy degrees.
Winter is long here.
~ When there's no one complainin'...there'll be days like this.. ~
(our violas waiting for snow to melt, just two weeks ago)
Also for the first time in six months, for one shining Today, I'm finding a smooth rhythm in my new waltz with Life in my fifties...
~ Everything drifts into place, like a flick of a switch. ~
The promise of more blossoms, the warming rays, my heart's desires, all conspire...
~ Well, my momma told me, there'd be days like this ~
( flowers soon to come...)
~ When you don't need to worry...there'll be days like this. ~
(...even more to come...)
~ On days like this ~
~ I must remember...there'll be days like this ~
This year, here in southern Oregon, for one day of long-missed sun, this last day of March...is going out like a sweet baby lamb.
May Warmth enter into your days...
