paying homage…to the sun…what else?

Here in the Seattle area where the sun doesn’t abide year round, we’re always focused upon its next appearance. So while others may perform rain dances…poor, deranged souls…we close our eyes at night hoping that when next we open them…the sun will have risen in our neck of the woods. So to help it along, I’ve written a song…actually a ditty…hoping the Creator…or Mother Nature…or whoever’s in charge…will take pity.

Thanks for the sun…that lights away the shadows…inside…and out,

its warmth…that blankets all beneath,

making the flowers bloom…the birds chirp,

the children frolic…while the adults tend to chores…outdoors. 

Power-washing the driveway…digging pine needles from the gutters…pulling the weeds and watering the plants. Setting furniture out on the deck.

But what am I thinking???

Forget the tasks…forget the grind…

I’m headed to Molbak’s…where the sun always shines…no matter the weather!

A sip of java…some turkey on foccacia…nibble on a cookie (peanut-butter, of course!)

Gift items…plants…small treasures abound.

So look about you…there’s sunshine everywhere…you’ve just got to find it.

It’s probably hiding…somewhere…inside you!

For it’s no secret…you and I… 

…are the keepers of the sun…

………hugmamma.    🙂

    • Yes, sadly. Moving here might only depress you…unless you’re the outdoorsy type…hiking mountains, jogging trails, pitching tents, saving salmon. I’m the indoorsy type myself…keeping warm while keeping house, writing, reading, nuzzling my pets, humming along with the radio, organizing, and re-organizing.

      But when the sun does peek through…there’s nothing like the exploding colors of the lush scenery…from majestic Mt. Rainier…to the blue waters of Seattle’s Puget Sound…and everything in between.

      I just have to step outside to breathe in the crisp, fresh air to remember how lucky I am to live…here.

      hugs… 🙂

        • Well…you do what you need to do to make it through the pain and fatigue. Don’t worry that you’re not keeping up. Focus on feeling better…and get better…that’s your job for the day. When you need the break…revel in the break. Do something that can bring you a little joy…in the moment.

          my hugs and prayers…are always with you…hugmamma. 😉
