A Child is Born

The urban sunrise was brilliant.

They enjoyed breakfast on the patio.

A game of chess in the garden was their plan for later that afternoon.

Suddenly, a cramp caused her body to flinch. 

The intense suffering of childbirth had begun.

A precious child would be joining them soon.

Their lack of experience weighed heavy, draining their emotions. 

They felt anxious; yet, they had been waiting months for this moment.

With tear-filled eyes, she grasped his hand and flinched again.

The physical pain would soon reward them with a glorious gift.

The gift will fill their hearts with immeasurable love and happiness.

Friday Fictioneers – Nature Awakens

The morning air is misty.

A slight chill is perfect for my walk.

 It’s eerily quiet today. 

Invigorated, I’m ready for my early morning coffee on the lanai.

The view of the garden revives my soul. It’s peaceful. Nature’s tooting her horn with songs of praise to the blooms about to be born. Trees reach out their branches to the sun in a zen posture. Bursting leaves beginning to sprout in verdant colors.

Winters days are slowly departing.Time for spring to emerge and draw near.

Birds fly above with silken wings glistening in the sunlit air. Blue Jays sing.
