And lift up your eyes
Rejoice in the everyday
Sing songs to the sun
And sing to the everyday commonness of [your] daily lives.
“Still, what I want in my life
is to be willing
to be dazzled—
to cast aside the weight of facts
and maybe even
to float a little
above this difficult world.”
― Mary Oliver
From my world to your heart,
The amazing sky—never empty–nor a void either
Never a void, scudding clouds make the last rays of sunshine a page out of a coloring book
Walking in vibrantly stained air is sometimes like walking in a molten shower of color
And honestly…not only does it make my heart sing; my soul seems alive!
My eyes delight in the brilliantly painted skies, which fling shadows shaded in blacks and grays
I hope you are (also) able to wander outside and capture the sun within the beats of your heart!
