Alive Yet Again

Crisp Autumn Morning
Crisp Autumn Morning

Another crisp fall morning. Another chance to give. So many things to do today, and much more life to live.

Much there is to catch up on. Every day a blessing. Now that spirit is restored, and all deserves progressing.

We all stall out from time to time, all look down and mutter. Our engines loose their tuning. Our hearts begin to mutter.

Then finally comes a clearer day. No rain or weather pining, to wear us down and fetter. Things can stop declining.

So here I sit in planning mode, ready again to move forward. Much to see, much to do, to gain a future reward.

Friends I must catch up with, and also relations knowing. Clean dust up off the cupboard. The brooms bristles need bestowing.

Eyes no longer crying. Hearts bruising begins healing. New days dawn arising. Time to again start living!

We've all been there. Dust yourself down and start all over again.

Nicely done.

It really has been a time of it for me as of late. Just glad to snap out for some air from time to time. Thank you for your thoughts.

This goes with the last one! Lots of determination and enthusiasm, getting going after a time of rest or immobility. Great! Ann
