Conversation with the Sun

I arose upon a morning, where the sun has used a brighter voice
A change in tone, with softer words, and has dusted off his better mood
The sun has said, 'good morning' and now I have a better choice  
I'll sweep the doldrums, with the breeze, and shoo the clouds that brood

Early dawn was washed anew, and met the sun with drops of rain
to sweep the cobwebs from my brain, and clear the day ahead
It is not that I will grumble, with thoughts that dim the sun again…
Chores, for once, can wait awhile, while rainbows clear my head

I look outside the window ledge, and like what I can see
Those gloomy clouds are breaking up, while I sip a cup of tea
The frown upon my forehead, which was such a part of me
has disappeared, soothed away, like sunshine through the trees

The colors of a rainbow’s view, now chases blues away
The sun peeks in to say "adieu", and brightens up my day

For Elly Wouterse's: Positive Sonnet Encore Contest  7/7/14

    This is very nice, Carrie. I love to watch the changes of the morning. The sounds and images set the tone for the whole day. Nicely written with great rhymes.... Robert.

    I enjoyed your conversation. Instead of I sip on my tea consider I sip here on my tea. Or I sip upon my tea. It adds another beat and helps with the rhythm of the piece.
