a simple secret

Two weeks in the warm sun and sea stirred another poetry muse… don’t judge the simplicity, the approach is game changing…

Morning Routine

When I get up in the morning 
I like to jump up out of bed,

direct my thoughts with purpose
and decide what’s in my head,

appreciate my coffee,
the warm shower on my skin,

savor my time alone
before responsibilities begin.

I reflect upon what’s coming,
people, things, career,

all through a lens of love
before they even do appear.

The things about my kids
that bring a smile to my face.

My vision in my work
not the problems that make me race

The light that brightens in the east,
and its contrast against tall trees.

Squirrels busy, birds high aloft,
floating and peacefully free.

I’ve found that when I start the day
focused on all the good 

things always turn out better
then I ever thought they could.

  2. Oh such beauty. Leonardo DaVinci once said, “Look at something beautiful each day”. And you have started my day in such a way. Thank you dear one.
