Day 312: Morning Sun Glory
The best mornings are sunny mornings. Waking up to sun is like a vitamin soul shot for the day. You can't beat the happy feeling it creates ~ i.e. this day's gonna be good, this day's gonna be bright and beaming and brilliant! And who better to articulate this wondrous glory than Mary Oliver:
Why I Wake Early - Mary Oliver
Hello, sun in my face.
Hello, you who make the morning
and spread it over the fields
and into the faces of the tulips
and the nodding morning glories,
and into the windows of, even, the
miserable and the crotchety—
best preacher that ever was,
dear star, that just happens
to be where you are in the universe
to keep us from ever-darkness,
to ease us with warm touching,
to hold us in the great hands of light—
good morning, good morning, good morning.
Watch, now, how I start the day
in happiness, in kindness.
