One February Day

Driving to my job one February day,
Watching how the sky made everything seem gray.

I felt a little glum and uninspired.
Sunshine and verdant springtime I desired.

A shaft of light appeared from overhead.
It was as if my thoughts were being read!

Mesmerized, I gazed at the brilliant white.
Tinged with gold, it flooded sky with light.

I drove on, but a new thought filled my mind.
My happy spring would not be far behind.

Written 2/2/13 for Seren Roberts' Shaft of Light Contest

    So full of hope and life, Andrea. Loved the read. About Nette, she should be fine, maybe she could be just over busy. I feel we should soon hear from her.
