March 7, 2014 Photo (066/365): "Light"
"When you rise in the morning,
give thanks for the light,
for your life, for your strength.
Give thanks for your food
and for the joy of living.
If you see no reason to give thanks,
the fault lies in yourself."
How bittersweet to leave
our sunny kitchen this morning,
knowing that on Monday,
the darkness will have returned.
I welcome Daylight Savings Time,
an early harbinger of spring.
I long to return home in time
to take twilight walks
to enjoy sunsets from our deck.
Though I will miss these shining mornings,
I'm thankful for the changing seasons
as long winter nights
stretch into bright spring days.
