Sunshine on my Mind

Infusing the sky with layers of colour

The celestial body then slowly slides into the clouds

The moon, now obscured by a fluffy whiteness

Disappears into oblivion and so begins another day

Solar batteries inside my head depleted

Then wonders of wonders the clouds burst

Blue skies sunshine and shadows prevailed

My heart rejoiced and a weight lifted

The sunshine sank lightly into my soul

As the sun sunk behind the hills it lingered on the tree tops

Sunshine always on my mind



I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.

  1. Beautiful winter photos and beautiful words, Bernie! New is the year, new are the hopes, new is the resolution, new are the spirits, and new are my warm wishes just for you. Have a promising and fulfilling New Year! Aiva 🙂 xxx


    1. Donna, thank you for the lovely compliment about the prose and the photos. Certainly not my best sunrise photo as somehow my camera wasn’t cooperating – it was much more spectacular in person (as they usually are). Somehow the words flowed into my head at various parts of the day. I hadn’t intended to do two posts today but that’s how it worked out! Thanks for reading. Happy New Year and take care. Bernie
