Beautiful

Love the way
Winter's chill disappears into the sunny breeze.
Laughter rings as little ones skip lightly across chalk-colored driveways.
Grass softens and strengthens for the coming green.
Buds emerge from tree branches long held silent.

Love the way
Friends grow closer every day.
Husbands and wives find new ways to love.
Children learn new things about their world.
Distant relatives discover electronic communication.

Love the way
Warm whole wheat cookies smell fresh from the oven.
Small boys sleep away the afternoon.
Windows show tiny handprints.
Dishes are all clean and put away.

Love the way
you write!? and the way Nostalgia sounds.
Ah....I think I relaxed a few degrees just by reading that!
