Mornings are dark right now, but I am looking forward with anticipation and pleasure to our wonderful skies come spring. Vancouver has the most beautiful clouds I’ve ever seen and they fill me with joy. I face north and see the mountains from my windows and sometimes the clouds embrace the peaks as they would a lover.
Good Morning World…
Night in passing gives a military salute
And a promise of a crimson dawn
Kisses my window.
Blossoms vie for space and light on my balcony
They push and shove like crowds of pedestrians
On a crowded boulevard.
Cool air caresses my skin with a hint
Of sensual heat to come if I could only
Learn to be patient.
Fresh air and brewed coffee and car fumes
Dance together in my nostrils offering
A feast at my fingertips.
‘Good Morning World,’ I call out to nobody.
Jerry is looking particularly handsome in that photo, Maughm. His jaunty angles suggest that perhaps he is doing a little dance, perhaps also anticipating better weather!
Yes, Jerry is doing a good job for sure and that lovely photo of him and the lilac tree in bloom warms my old bones even in the rain. Love ya, Maughm
You live in a beautiful area. And you appreciate the beauty.
Hi Muriel. Bye till next time!
Yes, this IS a beautiful area and I needed to remember that during this rainy season. Have a great 2020.
Good morning! You are such an inspiration, I say yet again. I’m sure you could find beauty anywhere. It’s a cold cloudy morning here, and then your post! Thank you.
Thank you Jaya: Yes, it is cold and wet here too, but the clouds are tinged with pink and the snow capped mountains are a deep blue right now. Maybe it won’t rain today…. Stay well.
The world needs poetry right now, more than ever. Thank you, Muriel, for your beautiful words and pictures!
It sure is what I need this morning. Stayed in because my balcony is covered in snow. Hope it melts later so I can get out for a walk. Oh, well… I remember spring and it will come again. Stay well….
Thank you. I am a morning person. It is always my favourite time of day. During this difficult time of COVID:19, I’m grateful I love what I see from my balcony too.
