A Morning Like This

May has entered my world softly.
The dogwood tree outside my kitchen window is just beginning
to open its lovely blossoms to the sky.
Though we have had more rain
and cooler temps than I prefer lately,
I know all will be well
now that May has finally
made her debut.

During the long Winter months
May and I are playmates
in Dreamland.
When I sleep at night
my dreams are always
filled with
warm days of
sunshine,
birdsong
&
flowers dancing in the breeze.
I never dream of Winter.
My Spirit is a child within Me.
Always waiting...
watching...
Longing...
For the return of my friend...
May.
She carries with her the promise of beautiful days ahead.
Days full of breezes through open windows,
laughter on the porch swing,
and warm evening walks.
Even Rosie is happy in her usual morning spot
underneath the dogwood tree.
She makes a show of her morning grooming here so
Mercedes
can watch from her favorite kitchen window.
Yes
I have to love
A Morning Like This.

"When I first open my eyes upon the morning meadows
and look out upon the beautiful world,
I thank God I am alive."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

  2. You are a no-reply blogger Danette so I can only get to you this way. I went on your Google+ account, which led me to your blog. Once I got on your blog I copied the site and pasted it to the blogs I am following area on my blog. Does that make any sense at all?
    I have tried to follow you in the past so I h=ave no idea why it worked this time. Hugs,
    Meredith

    1. How in the world did I get to be a no-reply blogger?!
      It does make sense but it is frustrating!
      I don't know what to do about it!
      Thanks for the insight Meredith!

    1. Thank you Kar! I decided it was time for some Spring Cleaning :-)
      I love the month of May with all its promise in bloom. My Rosie bunny lives in my yard and plays with the dogs every day. I have a video of it on my Facebook. It goes on every single day in the backyard.

  5. Happy May. It's been lovely here, too. Sprinkles of rain and overcast skies...is how I like it. It won't last and so I treasure it. Miss Mercedes is glorious. Who won't want to sit at the window watching spring bunnies.
