I'm sipping my nightly drink A cup of warm ginger and lemon made by my son Blend of fresh ginger slices, lemon and spoon of wild honey in warm water Flavored just right for my taste Not too sour nor too sweet

I woke up to a bright morning Feeling better than I felt these last three days The sun is unusually bright today Its piercing brilliance reflected In the glass window of our room
Weather is good No dark clouds hanging In the clear blue sky to obstruct the path Of sunlight in its sheer brightness I saw a flock of little birds descending For a quick peck on the ground outside It was a lovely sight to behold
