Pure Joy!





FLORIDA MORN

After the rain, lightning & thunder;
Cool gentle breezes flow
Making the air to breathe so crisp & right.

The grass is wet from the moisture we've been given,
Even the drains are cluttered this morn
palm tree fronds litter the ground
which just yesterday was mown.

The birds sound even more happy
as they fly thru the air
The woodpecker is really at work
on the tree he's hammering can be heard.

As I walk snickers he even
smells every blade of grass,
looks to and fro
for what is new in our neighborhood.

Nothing new can be found
its just a cleansing which has been done
sparkling as diamonds on this Florida morn.



"Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky."
Rabindranath Tagore

Nothing new... just a cleansing. There's something to that, isn't there?

Good title, because that pic is the personification of pure joy! Perfect timing on that shot!

That's a great photo and poem combo.

(Love all the flowers you've been posting, too.)

I can't tell you how many photos I took that day. Clearwater is a great beach for photos. I had 3 of the 4 kiddos. Twin #1 had tude that day and didn't go to the beach with the rest of us. It is always fun to watch kiddos on the beach....actually just anywhere, because there is nothing more special than the joy of a child.

Thank you darling for the Tagore quote, a very famous Indian (the first Indian to win a Nobel prize!).

As for the picture, I wanna be there enjoying the beach as well!
