Florida Morning

EARLY light

PALM fronds flutter like fingers beckoning, “come and see…”

A SKY painted by the Masters brush

BIRDS dart and sail across the vast azure canvas singing morning songs

Fragrances of Pine and Plumeria whisper memories in the soft breeze

of a girlhood spent in Florida summers

and midlife lived in Hawaiian beauty

 LIFE washes over me              

Beauty drenches me

Creation sings out 

its song of morning

Evoking a heart full to overflowing 

with Thankfulness

for this Life
