A pleasant morning surprise.

Photo:From the back deck

I’d never seen a morning bow

An early gift wrap for the sky

Moments later it disappeared

As the sagging clouds began to cry


The lush green woods across the lake

Masking a lost tobacco farm

A century ago it was at its peak

A piece of old Missouri’s charm


Mother Nature has it reclaimed

Hosting creatures big and small

Lakeside’s bounty redefining life

Far outside the shopping mall

My friend just sent me a morning rainbow photo today at his home in Menomonie, WI.

I like clouds crying on abandoned tobacco.

Priceless! Where retirement sounds good listening to Judy Garland sing Somewhere Over the Rainbow...

Count them, there soon be no more, for it will be a rainy day, every day, see if they sell Raincoats in the mall, then buy one, before there is a run on them, just a thought. Blessings! Jasmin Horst
