happy vernal equinox day....or spring

today we welcome spring back into our lives
like a long lost friend.
in our little corner of the world
she has made her appearance cloaked in
grey sky's and drizzle
with a chance of snow later this week...
but even though sunny skies and gentle breezes
are still a ways off,
i am thrilled at her rebirth 
and the pure potential of her next few months.
just a couple things that made me happy this morning...

"why i wake early"

hello, sun in my face.
hello, you who made the morning
and spread it over the fields
and into the faces of the tulips
and the nodding morning glories,
and into the windows of, even, the
miserable and the crotchety –
best preacher that ever was,
dear star, that just happens
to be where you are in the universe
to keep us from ever-darkness,
to ease us with warm touching,
to hold us in the great hands of light –
good morning, good morning, good morning.
watch, now, how i start the day
in happiness, in kindness."
