With exuberance


Your everyday life
might not be paradise, and
that’s alright

When you come to realize
it may never be perfect, but
it’s always worth it

Enjoy the simple pleasures
protect your treasures, so
they last forever

~~~

Sunrises and sunsets
never have any regrets, which
we tend to forget

Stay snug as a bug
in the warmth of a hug that
radiates pure love

Sing and dance
Like it’s your second chance
by circumstance

Singing In The Rain 🌧 ☔️

The ominous clouds were swirling an’ whirling
As we set out on this cold, dark dreary morning
Winds howled out a treacherous warning
All elements of nature urging us not to go
Whether it was stubbornness that showed
Our routine wouldn’t simply fold against the cold
About halfway through we really knew
The forecasts and signs were about to come true
But we pushed forward because we had to

Slow and random fat drops went splat
We picked up the pace and doubled back
A mile away from home the rain came down fast
You can lead the way, but you can’t stop the rain
And that’s okay cause we found our hearts singing today

Floss-silk

Her thorns are a mystery
each a sweetbrier
of history

With roots running deep
there’s strength
in her beliefs

She reaches for the sky
no rhymes or reasons
to justify

Thriving in a cold world
fighting for space
to unfurl

Bestowed by unique beauty
I find myself beguilingly
on duty

Barren of emotional leaves
yet still a formidable
tree, needs

Note: These trees are in my neighborhood, I’m not certain what they are, but Google indicates this is a  floss-silk tree common in California.
