A rhapsody of colors

The sunshine this morning is a

The Bard

The sunshine this morning is a

rhapsody of colors,

As the sun crests the Eastern

horizon.

The sun is a very brilliant ball of

heat and is being

Cut in half by a thin layer of rain

clouds.

The sky around the city of

Seattle is veiled with

Morning fog and smoke from

the many woodstoves

Due to the cold overnight

temperatures.

The sun now is very bright

and hard to look at but

Beautiful to see. My work

allows me to take myself

To the higher hill tops, not only to see my customers

But also enjoy the many blessings that are sometimes

Never seen by others. It makes my heart sing with joy.

Now that I drive down the backside of the hill

Toward the west, I’m faced with yet another beautiful

Site. For looking across the waters of Puget Sound, I

Can see the very large car ferries, as they make their

Way slowly across the sound to let the cars filled with

People off, to be on their way to work and other places.

This time of day is like magic because the water and

the sky merge into one.

Once again I’m filled with joy and gratitude for the

Wonderful, yet simple things I get to see.
