    the sun came out today and
    I took a bath in it
    stood underneath its waterfall
    soaked my brain in the light
    serotonin was crackin like
    light rail and I was
    back and ready for action like Samuel L. Jackson
    smilin while I was
    runnin with my headphones on
    so bright today that
    the streets kinda sparkled
    and the warmth
    oh the warmth
    quaked the trees and the earth
    to release their odors
    good smells put me
    on clouds
    I was lifted
    felt kinda gifted
    potential in the heavens and
    hope came back into my personal town
    hopefully this time to stay
    song of spring
    so life giving

    ^5 Sister Gempis...

    this lightened my spirit as I read...
    mentally breathing in the fresh clean air of the morning...
    admiring the dew on the grass...
    Feeling the newness of the day
    and admiring the brilliance of the dawn
    Sister you sparked my love of "Morning"
    as well as my love of "Spring"....with this piece
    *sitting back listening to the birds chirp*

    Love your work Girl! :bowdown:

    Justerika, that is one of the nicest things anyone's said to me in ages. Thank you so much! And welcome back - great to have you. Can't wait to read some of your flows.

    Quinnessential1, you kill me. :laugh: Happy to assist in the mental tan. Thanks for the love, brothah.

    $$RICH$$, thanks baby. I take a bath in your warm words, too.

    Many thanks, Blue. Your support means so much. :heart:

    watz, thank you for the love, sis. Means a lot.

    Hey Nita, or should I say former poet of the week. :wink: Gracias, sis. I preciate that.

    Ah, sister Angelicsage. *sigh* I knew you'd get it. I wish we could catch a sunrise or a spring morning together and then do a collab. Thanks for your love and respect, sister. Right back at you to the tenth power.
