I’ve just woken up and am watching a beautiful sunrise…in various shades of red, orange, pink, or golden-yellow (and was lucky enough to capture these pictures at the right moment). It’s such a shame that most people on this earth miss sunrises….. One can only revel in the joy of life.  I walked outside with the most wonderful spirit…with cotton clouds passing through and so much to be thankful for.  This was the tip of the goodness that I’m feeling today…..
Today I will remember that I am an honest, devoted and loyal person who lives for my family and friends. I am not perfect, I make mistakes, but I am happy to be me.  I can truly say that I do my best in every attempt to right my wrongs and say I’m sorry for the mistakes I make.
Today I will embrace life…..I am so happy to be alive.  Much love to all of you ~ oxo

I am happy I am alive

My dreams were never this colourful

My sleep was never this peaceful

My life was never this meaningful


I am happy I am alive

I am close to inner bliss

I am more like a careless dally

Soul also smiles, I learned


I am happy I am alive (Spell Bound)

  1. this is a really beautiful combination of visual and poetic

  2. Beautiful source of inspiration for me to start off my sunday with. I particularly love the last line of the second verse “Soul also smiles, I learned” That was the killer. Have a beautiful day…and hey, you’re lucky to get those beautiful sunrise view…I like them.

  3. have a nice day…

    i love your blog

  4. You may say you are not perfect! But the combination of these pictures and your lines, with their meaning, was sheer perfection ! Hope you enjoyed that sunrise… and enjoy many many such more …

  5. Beautiful photographs. You are right that most of us miss a lovely sunrise. I know I have been thinking of catching one, but waking up at that hour to go visit a lake far off to watch the sunrise hasn’t been possible as yet. Hopefully soon…

    Your poem is so positive and uplifting. It felt good to read it.

    I think I should take the time soon, to go and watch the sun rise. You have inspired me! Thank you!

  9. The words and pictures are both inspiring. There is nothing like a beautiful sunrise to reflect a smiling soul. Great post 🙂

  10. I’ve alaways been a morning person. Back in the Philippines, most of my earlier poems were written in the placidity of the early morning when my mind is most quiet and at peace.

    When I moved to Chicago, everything changed and I have to work night shift as a nurse so gone is my time to do my morning writing, but like the way it was, I would still write as soon as I wake up. So 1 PM became my morning for the past three years. But this year, I am blessed to get a new job that brought back my morning. I finally have my morning to write, to do my routine morning walk and see the beauty of dawn again.

    I wrote a poem some few years back about the changes in my sunrise when I moved to Chicago. You can read the poem in this link:

    I share your reverence for the morning. And I share your love for life and being grateful for every single breath we take with ease. For people in the hospital struggling to breath, it is a miracle.

    I wish you well.

    ~ Jeques

    • I’ve just read your beautiful poem…I live in the “concrete jungle” too but am thankful for the fact that I always have the sun in my heart! I go for a 7km walk every single morning and that is the time I connect with my inner-power, the time I need to take a little trip to the very heart of myself. I cherish these times. Thank you for your wise and kind words. Have a wonderful day ~ Amanda
