I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Sunshine on My Shoulders" by Johm Denver

"Sunshine"

Sunshine kisses the dew drops
in the wee hours of the morning,
bringing life
to every dormant blade of grass.

Warming the barren soil
sprouting beautiful colors,
like crocuses, tulips, and hyacinths,
alerting us of Spring.

Soothing music from the song birds
wake us in the morning,
with little critters
like the grey squirrel
coming out to play.

Reflecting a joy
within our hearts,
giving us new energy
to start another day.

Crocus, Hyacinth, and Tulips

        Ms Dora,

        Thank you.

        I can imagine the feeling of the heat in the tropics.

        Sunshine does make one feel better.

        Can't wait til its here for good. Got down to 36 and I woke up to a broken furnace. A bit chilly, but all fixed now.

        But then again..so is weather for next few days.

        Sunshine is a natural energizer. As for the warmth, we really feel it in the tropics. But it does so much good. Thanks for your lovely poem.

        Lora,

        Thanks.

        I am so happy Spring is here and I can look forward to warmer weather.

        It's rather chilly here this morning though and I feared Spring had left but I guess it will warm up a bit this afternoon.

        Have a great day.
