In the silence of early morning...

...Dawn slowly unveils its colours, while a soft breeze plays gently with the surface of the sea. Soon the strong sun light will turn the red-golden colour of the water into dark blue, with glistening sparkles of silver on top. A miracle that repeats itself every day but with a different mix of greens, blues, reds and yellows. If those whose only aim is to hold the reins of power tight in hand, would look up and watch how Nature so generously shares this with all of us, without making any distinction and without asking anything in return, they would understand that she does this to let our soul taste moments of total freedom which we all need to make ourselves stronger and more understanding towards our next of kin.

I'm going to share this with someone who is hurting right now. I think it will cheer her considerably.

Beautiful...had to say it even though everyone said the same thing. Yes, Nature shares generously and we must learn to live generously too!

Your thoughts here - sublime. Nature is an attentive suitor, if we should pause long enough to say hello.
