Day 769 — Light- Haibun Journey Beauty Each Day
Today’s beauty was light. The day started out with a soft amber light filtering through the blinds. When I looked out the window the sun ray’s were glistening off the neighbors chimney. I went outside and enjoyed the sunlight shining on the wet garden plants. There were beautiful long tree shadows across the lawn. As I drove to and from my hospice patient’s house I enjoyed the play of light. Later I worked on some glass creations. I loved the effect of bring them out in the sunlight. They sparkled and glistened spectacularly. Before the light faded I retook my garden pictures from yesterday. Somehow the camera got stuck on the fishbowl effect so I was able to reshoot most of them.
It’s interesting how a little bit of sunshine can brighten the day, increase beauty, and change the outlook. Light in the dark keeps us from stumbling, light in our lives restores our balance.
