Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 22nd day of February, 2016.

This summer the air felt warm as I opened the back door for Mr. Alvin to go outside.

So odd for February but very welcome all the same.

I would like to share a poem I wrote twenty-six years ago…… as I think of spring and summer.


Walking to and through the Rain …

As I’m walking along,

Pace, brisk as I have set.

The rain softly falling,

from the sky a tranquil blue.

That yellow beacon peeping thru.

Birds are flying singing their songs.

I’m humming a song in my mind.

Humming and thinking of moments —

Times that were wonderful.

Hoping that I may see them once again.

The sun is covered by dark clouds.

Rain begins to fall with passion,

Hard and heavy.

Drops of rain bead upon my face,

As I hasten my pace toward home,

I’m soaked through but no matter,

Dry clothes await me.

Rounding the corner I’m almost home.

There I will be dry – still thinking of those treasured times.

Wishing you were here – with me.

Written by CY Lewis, August 18, 1990


Happy Monday Everyone …..

Always good to think back ….. I was listening to Adele earlier and she made me think of a past love.

Special Hello to: Birthday girls ….. just around the corner ….. there are three.

Always, Carol and Alvin
