I saw the sun today

     soft rays of dapples light

     after days of overcast, drizzly rain.

I felt the sun today

     vibrant, glowing, tangible relief

     enveloping me in a warm embrace.

I heard the sun today

     birds sang, bees buzzed, wildlife scurried,

     all dancing in her glorious rays.

I smelled the sun today

     magnolia sweet and honeysuckle vine

     filling my head with dizzying fragrance.

I tasted the sun today

     warm clover honey on fresh baked biscuits

     with warm sun tea beckoning me to sit awhile.

I saw the sun today

     my soul rejoiced

     my heart sang

     my mind danced

     my body tingled

I saw the sun today!
