Morning Has Broken

I awake to the sound of rain gently pattering on the rooftop above me

birdsong drifts in through my open window

My eyes open to a dreary light

no sunrise with the rain 

Outside is drab and colorless, oh how I long for the return of green

As I stare out the window, a chaotic mess of tangled, twisted tree branches greets me

they seem to mirror my busy, scattered thoughts on this a.m

But I focus on the bird sounds

breathe in the fresh air wafting in through the window

I feel grateful the temperature is mild enough to even have the window open

grateful for ears to hear the bird’s sweet voices

grateful for the breath in my lungs

Traffic sounds increase, people who’ve awoken before me and are already in their cars hurrying off to their various places

I wonder if they heard the birds singing upon arising, or instead awoke to the blaring sound of an alarm clock

I feel grateful once again

grateful that I can awake gently, according to my own body clock 

Church bells ring in the distance

One noisy sparrow looks in at me through the window and begins squawking at me, as if saying “Get up, get up, early bird catches the worm!”

I have no worms that need catching, but I could use some coffee

and there’s a hungry cat meowing outside my door

So I arise

Morning has broken

I have no photo to share with this, but a song comes to mind…

Everything is a song…

 

Be blessed and have a lovely day!

My Morning View

 My Morning View is in response to April Love 2015

 

A happy April 1st to all of you!  🙂

I’m a huge fan of new beginnings – a new day, a new month, a new this, a new that.  And for me, with the month of April being the embodiment of springtime, it overflows with all things new, bringing with it a fresh hope.

May you be filled with fresh hope today too, and with…

Wordless Wednesday

 

“Hush, little Baby, don’t say a word…”

This is even more clever because her name is Baby.

Oops… so much for this post being wordless…  😉
