You are my Sunshine

in hive-174578 •  last month  (edited)


Somewhere along the line of life, setting suns, snowfalls and singing in the rain took on a new meaning to me. There have always been birds, filling the air with song, except now – I can hear the words. I really can… I listen carefully, ever so, just in case the angel in the garden starts to sing along.

I embrace the beauty of life through the eyes of spring because perception is everything. I can hear the symphony of life shouting out as the days pass into the sunshine of life.

The forecast is hinting at the thoughts of rain later today. Thunder tomorrow. If the sun shines in your soul, does it really matter if it rains outside?

There will be no resistance to coloring my world with love. All that is true and deliberate will be counted.

Dictionaries describe lift something like the following: “to carry or direct from a lower to a higher position; the power or force available for raising to a new level or altitude; a force acting in an upward direction, opposing the pull of gravity.”


Oh, yes. Your attitude will determine your lift and altitude. There are countless things required to make an airplane fly – and do it safely, but the most important thing is the “wind beneath your wings.” Without it, there is no lift, no climb, and no flight into the wild blue yonder or to one of those far-away, beautiful destinations.

You are the wind beneath my wings.


“Did you ever know that you're my hero, and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle, for you are the wind beneath my wings”

Always bring your own brand of sunshine with you. Wherever you go, whatever you do. Don't leave home without it.

Kindness is the sunshine in which virtue grows.
~Robert Green Ingersoll

And quite unexpectedly, a brilliant ray of light flooded sunshine upon me. But for today, I walk in the light of knowing it will come again. And again.

"You are my sunshine.
You send color to my gray.
When I’m in tears.
You blow my heartbreak away.
You make me happy when times are down.
You turn my world upside and around.
You catch my tears in your hand.
When I’m in terror you understand.
When I’m falling to the ground.
You catch me and twirl my heart around.
When I’m surrounded by darkness within the night.
You come around and cast your light.
If you weren't here I don’t know what I'd do.
Sunshine, I really love you."


And just like that, this post is done. Electic and true, from me to you. Come back tomorrow and we'll do it again! Have an amazing day!

Thank you for visiting my post 💖 Because of you, I come back to post, again and again. And never forget, kindness counts. Wherever you go, whatever you do.



they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

I really like the mono of the bird!

I always like rainy days. I can bum around and not feel guilty!

I don't know if you are allowed to have a wedding and not play that song. Must be a law in most every state.

Oh, seriously! :) I don't believe I had that at my wedding! Did you? Please don't say yes because then I will really feel like I have no idea about life.

I am on the fence about rainy days. It depends on what I have on the schedule! If I have nothing, oh yes! I feel guilty, but, I sure can bum around. And if it thunder, even the guilt dissipates.

The bird came out kind of cool. It was at an odd spot and I ended up taking pictures out of the window, so not too bad for a window shot. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your words.

All the photos are beautiful and b&w photo of bird flying is very much authentic for showing of our life, where we can deserve some moments for refreshness over the big sea.

Thank you! What a kind and generous comment you leave me.

I always enjoy a nice statue in a garden. Some who have signs of age from being there a while I'd love to know the things they've seen just sitting there. It's been raining everyday here lately. My ducks love the rain so I at least get a smile watching them play in the mud. :).

I have four statues... but to be fair, I have four gardens. I really like this one and originally it was a birdbath and the pedestal got broken in a move, so I planted that invasive stuff to crawl on the ground and a Maple Tree. Now, I am finally happy with her. LOL

Rain is sure to be your friend with all the tropical storms that hit the coast there. We even get a little backlash from that.

I will bet that the ducks are in heaven right about now! Thanks for stopping by and leaving your words!

Eclectic is a little said ... when I saw the title I thought it was written by @old-guy-photos, I think you know why.First of all, I understood that you decided to write a blog every day. Good decision!Apart from that, poetry and photos work wonders in your hand and always give birth to a very beautiful post.

Well, I actually don't post every day! I just don't have the time, although I wish I did. I have been taking the time to look through pictures that I take and never used, so that is good. I have lots of new flower pictures. :) That will excite everyone. (not)

I have no idea why that song popped in my head today, but, it did! I hope all is well with you and shame on me for not being able to get off my own profile to look around here! I think rain is expected in the forecast for the weekend. I suppose it is better than the hurricane/tropical depression weather they are having down south.

Thank you, as always for stopping by and leaving an awesome comment!

Music is always a pleasure and we probably remember it at some point, when we need it.
Yes, it's hard to write every day, I don't succeed until two or three days later. I'm glad you found the photos with flowers, I'm sure they are very good to see. I'm waiting!

Hehe... I posted a few last night. I find it hard to post every day, but, it is mostly time that keeps me from it.

Music is always a pleasure!

The time, of course! Our problem. Now that I should have more ... I actually have less.

Ironic, isn't it?

Yes!
