Welcome to the New Day

Every morning I open the front door and let the cat on the front porch.

I usually go back inside and check my emails with a cup of coffee. Today I saw a break in the rain we've been having.

A lavender, pink, and gray glow to the clouds beckons me outside. I venture out and notice the air is clean and fresh; it envelopes me like a cool bubble, wrapping me in it's gentle goodness.

A moistness is glistening on the ground below me and on all the plants.

I feel a lightness in the air and in my step.

I float along as I walk, above I hear birds chirping their song.

The earth is saying welcome to the new day; Welcome to the New Day.

    Hi Amy, thanks, the winters here are back and forth with warm and then cold, then the heat comes in to stay. Ha.

    Hi Midori, thanks, I love those little ferns too. In dry weather they are the indicator plant, when they shrivel and wilt we need to water.
