My backyard view ⛈
In the eye of the storm, You remain in control
In the middle of the war, You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn
Your love surrounds, me in the eye of the storm (lyrics from Eye Of The Storm by Ryan Stevenson)
We’re experiencing so much rain..gonna have to start building an ark. But with the rain comes an explosion of Green-ness…a vibrant hue that says LIFE.
What would happen if tomorrow morning I awoke to a canopy of branches and leaves and my feet touched the soft inviting bed of moss? And what if tomorrow, instead of a green juice, I drink the dew dripping from the clouds drip by sustaining drip?
What if tomorrow I get out a new piece of paper and draw a different path, with different endings, with different sights and different loves?
What if…….I follow my own path,,,,listen to my heart,,,do my own thing?’
What if tomorrow I start over, again……and again and again?! ~Unknown~
“Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.” ~ Pedro Calderon de la Barca~
The somberness of the dawn
By the melancholic
Softness of the falling rain.
As the sky lightens
Birdsong mixes in.
What transpires is a
With Mother Nature,
As the musical selection
Reaches its crescendo,
My Spirit awakens,
Ready to soar!

Upon awaking this morning,
I was greeted by the roar
Of the whipping winds..
And the pounding of the rain,
Pelting ‘Good Morning’
Against my window.
Grateful to be snuggled
Warmly under my blankets.
I lay and listened,
As wind and rain worked
In perfect unison,
Creating nature’s harmony.
Today’s assignment suggests writing a response of some sort to a tweet.
Writing 101 gave us a few examples to choose from. I decided to head over to Twitter and find one of my own…………

I chose this specific tweet for the simple fact that it is a rainy Tuesday morning….and I always look forward to a rainy day. I love the darkened day, as my little lights shine brighter.
On days like these, I can stay in my comfy clothes, drink tons of coffee, light some candles, listen to Enya and just be…….and we all know, into each life some rain must fall. I Am the elements, and the elements are me. Today happens to be water 🌧💦
The winds are howling
The rain is falling
A storms a’brewing
And so is the coffee
(The first three lines came to me last night,,,just had to throw in that last line! 😄)
There is a melancholy feel to the day, but in a good way. Today is and will be a day of reflection as I remember a man whom I love and miss very much. Yes, the rain is falling, but I look to the Heavens, and let the rain wash my tears and sadness away………..Ill be dancing in the rain with you grandpa 💙
