How Are You Today?

I awake in the morning,

I get up and look out the window.

The glorious dawn light

Shines upon me,

Upon my body,

Upon my soul,

And I know that I am alive.

Each day I arise,

I know it will be a good day.

    A fine write Gold.
    Erm, I replied: 'I'm not too well; I tried not breathing for 24 hours. Can't understand why I don't feel well now'. I was only trying to save some air for a day. heehee.

    • Goldfinch60

      Thanks Orchi. It can have that effect if you stop breathing even for a short 24 hours.

      • orchidee

        Pity I was breathing OK in 1066. Enough breath to say those immortal words..... you know the ones!

      • Poetic Dan

        Each day you pass that message along, thanks for the signpost to keep smiling. Its a new day!

        • Goldfinch60

          Thank you Dan. Each new day is wonderful.

          Frankly i woke feeling knackered after a really hard days work. Aches and pains and now envy..... bah... humbug!

          • Goldfinch60

            No need to be envious d a, the weekend is with us soon.

            I like humbugs.

            My response is always - 'Well bits of me are okay'

            • Goldfinch60

              I can certainly understand that Michael. The bits that are ok are getting fewer and fewer.

                if only more folk could see the world through such optimistic eyes,

                there would be more smiles than frowns ,

                in both countryside and in towns.... N

                • Goldfinch60

                  So true Neville, the everlasting question โ€œIf only....โ€

                  No matter the season,
                  It's good to feel the cool morning sun
                  Warm the face, body and soul

                  Yes it will.......

                  • Goldfinch60

                    Yes it surely will Suresh.
