The Sun is this Beautiful City!

fast and furious the frost came in
before it was really time,
I went into my yard,
it certainly did not like mine,
my Virginia Creepers
usually turn a beautiful bright red,
I stopped fast in my tracks
amazed at what I saw,
all the leaves were wrinkled, black and dead.
Oh no was the first thought that entered my mind,
and then I noticed a few gifts the frost had left behind,
there stood a single buttercup
as proud as could be,
it was like a gift that was left behind
especially for me,
I could not help but smile,
as one lone flower remained,
I think it was a reminder
that in Spring
the flowers will come again.
The last two days the sun came out
after nearly 3 weeks of hiding behind the clouds,
I was able to venture out again,
I sat at my bright yellow table,
with my journal and my pen,
The freshness of the beautiful fall day,
a bowl of hot chili and a bun,
my dog laying at my feet,
leaves from the trees falling like snowflakes
slowly to the ground,
nothing was heard but BlueJays in the distance,
their brilliant blue soaring in the sky.
I gave one last thought to summer,
and was excited for the days ahead,
that is why this morning
I awoke at five,
Soon I am off for my morning walk,
It is great to be alive.
the sun is slowly rising,
wishing good morning to me,
I smile what a wonderful day.
With the right attitude
it could be
My Best Day Ever!
have a wonderful day

  8. What a beautiful description of your yard and your life. I see sun shiny yellow around you. We have had two days of storms here and today I walked out to the mail box and saw lots of large tree branches broken off and in the yard. And leaves are beginning to change colors. You sound like you are feeling pretty good and I hope that continues for you.
