“What a wonderful world”

I awoke early this morning, the sun beaming through my window. Skies blue with the occasional fluffy white cloud, still. Trees all shades of green, birds flying around greeting the new day with the joy of song. Gardens full of colour, a never-ending carpet. I awoke early this morning and thought “What a wonderful world”…

I awoke early this morning. The skies grey and heavy. Rain hitting my window, and rolling down to the window sill, like tears on a saddened face. The gardens bleak and barren. Day light trying to break, no sunshine visible to the naked eye. I thought to myself “What a wonderful world”

I awoke early this morning. White as white can be. Untouched by the mortal being. The beautiful sun shining in the skies reflecting diamonds in the snow, still and calm, quiet and crisp. The weight of the tree branches dropping their weight as it falls silently to the ground. I think to my self “What a wonderful world. “

I awoke early this morning winds blowing fast and free, branches blowing across the earth with no direction. It’s dark as dark can be. The whirling sound, howling round and round. There is no sun, but electric blue lights, jiggered across the skies with thunder loud and clear. Rivers of water rolling down the road into over flowing grids unable to take the volume. I think to myself, “What a wonderful world”

I awoke early this morning, with a day ahead. people to meet and things to do. Thoughts hurrying and dashing through my head. Appointments to attend and windows in my diary full. My peaceful night in bed, gone, a memory distant and far away. I opened my curtains with heavy burdens and what do I see?  Today, that is a gift, as it is the present. The beauty of the earth, at no cost to me. I think to myself “What a wonderful world”
