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!

Music Monday – Happy New Year

Few videos are more inspiring for me to watch than time lapse nature photography set to music, and this one seems fitting as the “sunset” on 2017 has come and we celebrate the “dawning” of 2018.  Happy New Year my friends, may it be filled with wonderful, beautiful, inspiring things for you!

Music Monday

 

A beautiful original piece by my daughter…

 

 

It’s been several years since she’s done anything with her music, so listening to this makes me feel a bit melancholy.  But some beautiful things have happened in our lives since then – my precious granddaughter for one!  So that touch of melancholy is also mingled with deep gratitude…

 

Thanks for listening, have a beautiful Monday!

Music Monday – Summer Breeze

 

Sheltered from the blazing sun

I lay daydreaming

under a lush canopy of green

soothed by the caress of the warm summer breeze

🎶”Summer breeze makes me feel fine…”🎶

 

 

This song is filled with nostalgia for me, as it reminds me of the summers of my childhood.  Funny how the phrase “summer breeze” brings it to mind all these years later…

 

May you have a warm, soothing, summer breeze blowing your way on this Monday…

Music Monday – Hold Back the River

 

Another scene from a bike ride that brings song lyrics to mind.  And a certain someone…

Hold back the river…

Music Monday – Yellow

 

I came across a massive field of dandelions on my bike ride the other day and just had to hop off my bicycle to try and capture a piece of the magical scene with my phone, it was like looking out at a sea of pure sunshine.  While I was looking out at it I heard a line from Coldplay’s song “Yellow” playing in my head…

“And it was all yellow”

 

Except when against the blue of the sky…

How can anyone hate dandelions?  They’re like bright little stars shining in a field of green and “Look how they shine for you.”

 

I like the sound of the studio version of this song better, but listening to any music in concert is always fun, and this one is “all yellow”  😉

 

May bright things shine for you this week…
