Cool damp wood, bare feet, bay breeze, the aroma of sea, mist meeting skin.
Tall green pines, snowcapped mountains, blue water, whitecaps dancing.
Bunnies peak from under the hedge, hopping, playing, chewing clover.
Each new morning a prayer in the familiar of passing years.
Thank you for this lovely day, a day that I will live with positive thoughts, joy and happiness, gratitude and appreciation.
A fawn and two babies amble by. I am here, in the now, peaceful.
And as quickly I lose myself in the unknowns of tomorrow, the wonders of today escaping at my own doing.
A low jangle from the far side of the deck. Closer now. Dog tags clanging against each other. Pup approaching.
A furry face, sparkling eyes bringing me back. There’s today to live, inspiration to embrace, laughter for the spirit.
We sit together, the rising sun touching with warmth, a small dog tender with trust.
And this morning on the deck I celebrate the moment, the simple beauty, the love.
