birds are singing once again
caressed by sunshine

spring+is+in+the+air

beauty chillin’

 

frost sparkles on trees,

catches prisms of sunshine

and glitters  landscape;

i stare in admiration

of God’s holiday lighting!

breathe prayer of thanks

Following surgery to remove melanoma, my dear friend’s PET scan is clear…no sign of cancer!

 

sunshine after snow

perfume of spring in the air

laughing daffodils

enjoy fun time with loved ones

make good memories today

Nature_050

( a tanka)

sunshine takes a hike

to mountaintop meadow of

fragrant wildflowers;

highlights lofty evergreens,

ancient monarchs reign from cliff.

color my world

Yellow is…

daffodils blooming early
bright umbrella on the beach
pair of goldfinches nesting

busy honeybees buzzing
wind chimes tinkling on porch
classy, brassy trumpet tunes

tartness of lemon merengue pie
buttery sweet corn-on-the-cob
birthday cupcakes with candles

warm sunshine on cheeks
hugs from grand children
rainboots splashing in puddles

Yellow can put a smile on your face!
