The Sun Is Shining

The sun is shining so beautifully this morning.
Itís time for my second cup
And I am daydreaming.
What will today bring. The grass is green and
The birds are singing.
My, how I love that. On the table lays a design I did
Several days ago. Grapes and daisies hanging gracefully
Winding around one another.
The lines are moving.
It looks different this morning; still good to me
But different.
New ideas for forming. The ideas are growing.
Why!! I donít know.
Itís feelings. I love the roaming, searching, finding.
I love the movement.
A magazine lays near by. As I go through it again,
After many times,
I see something new.
I have so many paper clipped pages.
WOW !!
Where do I go next? I am grabbing the paper and pencils!
