Captured by Rapture

Are you inspired to live joyfully today and through 2018?

Indian Myna (Pixabay photo)

…………….….As I turned to leave our driveway, I laughed…………………

……………………….…..In a puddle in the gutter.…………………………….

……………………..An Indian myna was taking a bath……………………….

……………….…Fluttering wings joyfully scattered spray,………………….

…………………….Splashed water with wild abandon……………………….

………………………….And held me in their sway…………………………….

Scattering Joy In Life

The more I edited my poem, “Captured by Rapture”, the stronger I connected emotionally with this scene etched in my memory over a year ago.

I aim to live this way: relaxed and happy, bringing joy to others as well as myself.

Are you inspired to live joyfully today and through 2018?
