A Sonnet
From behind tall trees, a golden sunrise
Awakens a weary world from slumber
The cool gentle breeze, whiffs of lavender
Touches my face; an angel in disguise!
The fleeting dawn gives way to clear blue skies
As the sun raced up the heavens yonder
Cheerfully, I watch in child-like wonder
As the world is transformed before my eyes!
The night storm’s over, erasing all doubt
That good fortunes come whenever I pray
From behind tall trees, slowly I step out
To soak in blessings of a glorious day
In thanksgiving, heav’nly praises I shout
For darker forces have been held at bay!

Thankful to have survived Harvey and all the other storms in my life.

Thank you Brod. You know, never too late to start writing. I used to write when I was a child. But life intervened. I started again in 2012 and I haven't stopped.
