Worth getting up for

This is the sort of morning that

The dew sparkles on the grass

The sun shines through the trees

Casing elongated shadows

Adorning the deep leaf carpet

The nip in the air tingles on the lips

Spider’s webs wait, hang between trees

Holding diamond droplets of dew

Waiting to stick to my face

Water bubbles and trickles

Gently meandering downstream

Birds gentling singing

In the canopy above

I stand in the warm sun

And close my eyes

It could almost be summer

Then the nip of the air

Tingles on my lips

And I remember autumn has arrived

And this is a day

Worth getting up for.

Warmth of my dreams

Blue skies, bright sun

Fast moving clouds

Icy winds

Cold inside

Goosebumps on skin

Where is the summer?

Want to warm up

Shivering all over.

Look at the options

A cuddle is out

The heating is off

Hot coffee

I close my eyes

Think of the heat

The sun on my face

I smile in the warmth

Of my dreams.

Thank you

Your kindness and feelings are important to me
Like the wind that carries the seeds to their new resting place
Like the sun that warms the earth and makes us smile
Like the rain the flows steadily to hydrate us
Like the ice that freezes the ground to slow life down
Like the snow that falls and creates beauty
Like the ebb and flow of a river ever changing
Your encouragement refreshes me
Your kindness enlightens me
Your passion inspires me
I thank you for entering my life.
