Happy are those - Sunshine and Happiness

in sunthursday •  3 months ago 


It’s hard to accept as true, those summer days are numbered and few. Time lingers - for not a soul. I still hold on, I won’t let go. Then again, there is that Thursday thing going on too., leading me straight into the weekend, almost — at rolling over in clover.

A golden ray of sunshine - those are the kind of days that are sure to make a memory.

This post is dedicated to #SunThursday by @Uwelang because even though the sun isn't showing, it is shining down in all of its glory.

You can always find a little beauty despite the things in your life, true? "Every rose has its thorns" — at the garden of life.

Happy are those that rain sunshine down upon another. To grow and feel encouraged by those around us— at the corner of happiness and sunshine.

I said I'll love you 'til the end of time
Say you'll be mine
Say you'll be mine
Push those words back
To me, don't you see
So I will know
Today and forever
You are mine, you are mine
Say you'll be mine


Flowers. There must always be flowers. Because they color my world, every single day.

Bloom where you are planted, wherever, however

¸.♥´¸.•♥¨) Let the sun shine in on your life
So the joy may touch your soul

(¸.•´♥ (¸.•´ ♥

I am sure that everyone is a veteran of blowing bubbles. It is remarkable that something so simple can bring so much happiness - to so many people. It doesn't discriminate against sex, race or religion. There are streams of laughter; people have fun blowing bubbles and trying to catch them.

Be back in a few. Off to capture the joy!!!

And just that quick, this show is over. Tag me and I will visit you too! Thank you for allowing me to muse about and as always, I wish you a wonderful day!

Thank you for visiting my post 💖 Because of you, I come back to post again and again. And remember always- kindness counts. Wherever you go, whatever you do.


I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

warsan shire

I got to say I really really like the look of the wet flowers. Kind of sums up so many things. Like there is no total perfection in life. Like you say every rose has it thorns, just try to find the ones with the less thorns lol. But, after all, they are beautiful in spite of being wet. Rain or shine, I wish you a truly happy day!!

We have really been fortunate to not have rain except perhaps for a little bit at night. So every morning everything is covered with rain or pork chops however you want to look at it. I think it looks really really beautiful and yes! Perfection is so overrated.

Thank you for stopping by and say hello and leaving those words behind! It truly is a beautiful day rain or shine, as usual. Have a most wonderful day yourself!

Much appreciated and I think the second one has come in first place with so many. I probably should have used it as my first picture. :)

Thanks again and have a great night!

That is, unfortunately, the summer days are numbered. Only global warming, before it becomes deadly, will prolong our summer by a few days.
Wonderful photos!
!trdo

Right now, we are still at 35C but, the flowers are starting to die off, some of them anyway... just little reminders that fall will be upon us. We won't get cooler weather until mid October- late October here in Washington, DC.

Thank you so much, Dan! @BlueMoon

With pleasure! The climate is similar to that in Romania, the difference is 2 -3 C, colder here.

@dswigle,

It’s hard to accept as true,
those summer days are numbered and few.
Time lingers - for not a soul.
I still hold on, I won’t let go.

Nice. Did you write that or is it a quote?

The wet flower pictures (#2 & #6) ... they're very compelling although I'm hard-pressed to say why.

Quill

@Quillfire

Surely you jest, am I reading this right?
Do you think I would quote
Without saying who wrote it?

Thank you. ;) A little rhyme-y but, hey, doncha know... It was the best I could do, especially on the run.

I'm glad you like the flowers. Haha! You don't have to have a reason to like them. Flowers just make me irrationally happy. Good enough reason for me. :)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your words! Have a great day!

@dswigle,

Hi Denise.

The reason I asked is because on previous occasions I have exuberantly congratulated people on their fine poetic creations only for them to inform me that it was Wordsworth. I suspected it was yours, though.

The style is familiar, like some famous Victorian poet, but I can't put my finger on exactly who. The Victorian poets were big into writing about Nature.

In any event, I really like it. It flows nicely. "

... numbered and few

Nice phrase.

Quill

Aren't you supposed to give a source when you use a quote? I like the Victorian styling myself, it is demure and oh-so-lovely.

I meant to ask you, the link you gave me was to an old post. I didn't forget your thing and please tell me I have until tomorrow to do one. :)

@dswigle,

The Contest's Deadline is August 25, 11:59 UTC. Here's the post link:

https://steemit.com/steembasicincome/@felixgarciap/reminder-of-the-nineteenth-issue-of-lyric-poetry-contest-prompt-flawless

The PHC twist is that you must apply the Contest's "flawless" writing prompt ... to a "Pork Roast."

Good Luck. Take no prisoners. :-)

Quill

Thanks, Quill. @quillfire

You 're awesome. Now I have to enter. LOL

Summers on the way! Say it isn't true because what it's summer for you truly the cold will be hitting Us in the face!

Delightful images so beautiful, yes I am seeing signs in some trees and flowers that summer is coming to an end, but summer is hanging on at the moment some hot and humid days this week, I hope it hangs on for a bit I do love Autumn colors but they last so short so I am in no rush for them yet

I hope your day is gong we’ll he weekend is fast approaching

Thank you so very much and I guess it's really hard to watch those signs of Summer passing right before our very eyes. Even though we have thought of hot and humid days before and after today, The cooling off from the extreme he is right around the bend.

The day is going extremely well, if not extremely busy and soon the weekend will be upon us! Thank you for stopping by and leaving your words and I wish you a most wonderful day.

Denise, you are a pro in taking flower pictures!!! It's just "wow!" The way you captured them is as if they were smiling, waving, and speaking. How did you do that @dswigle?!?

And the heart shadow captured my attention. I wonder if @melinda010100 had already seen it? Hahaha! 😂

Have a wonderful day.

I'm off to bed now. Good mornight. Hehehe! 🤣

thank you for your most wonderful thoughts! Well most of my pictures are not really good oh, I think that a times they strike them a note with a person and there is something that they find delightful in them, which I am always very grateful for.

I actually did not keep up with all of the Shadow contest but I will have to look and see if this falls into any category. I miss so many good contest because I just don't have the time but I do enjoy looking at all the participants in seeing photography that they have. She's had some pretty unusual subjects but everybody seems to be able to find things to put into the contest. That's a great challenge.

As always, I wish you a most wonderful day and thank you for leaving such a kind and generous comment.

!tip

Yeah, I think one could never go wrong with flower pictures, maybe because they are already pretty themselves! Hahaha! 😂

Every week shadow photo has a different theme. I guess that makes it more fun. Usually, I come to see the theme, and see if I can come up with something fun too. Then I come back later for my post. Hehehe. 😂

These contests makes me thrive in the platform since I do not have a support system. And it also gives me thrill on participating.

Anyhow, as long as one is having fun and abiding the rules--no plagiarism, then it's acceptable. 😊

Have a pleasant day, and thanks for the tip.

Beautiful post with bright flowers showering onlookers with surprising warmth and love!
Thank you so much for giving out so much love to all.
Love makes the world goes around.

Oh, thank you so much. Love really does make the world go round, doesn't it? It is so much easier to give in hopes of keeping it going round and round.

Your thoughts are always kind and your words filled with compassion and love. It is so easy to be kind to someone like yourself.

Thank you, as always for the most positive responses. I wish you the most wonderful day!

!tip

Thank you very much for your very nice comment and generosity. I am very grateful to your encouragement and compassionate to all sentient beings! You keep cheering people up everyday and reminding them of all the blessings and good things in life.

I could not maintain a cheerful countenance consistently as you could. But I try to live in the present and see things objective with mindfulness. Kindness and love & compassion enable life to endure and flourish. The world needs more people like you to bring sunshine and love to all.

I think you do a most wonderful job of seeing things as they are and carrying feathers to soften the hardness. You are, indeed a wonderful human being.

!tip

Oh! Thank you very much for your comment. I am just as imperfect as the person next door. Seeing my imperfections and drawbacks just makes me feel I have to start changing myself. It’s a hard and testing path which makes me learn to endure.

You are always positive and generous to all!

Best.

Beautiful macro images of the flowers, Denise. A lovely reminder in your poetry that life is like a rose with a combination of thorns and beauty.

What an sweet photo with the heart shaped by two hands. ♥️

Those wet flowers really look good in that lighting. Usually where I am at, when it rains like that the lighting is very overcast. Such encouraging words too! I'm wishing you a wonderful day. :)

!trdo

I never thought about it that way, but, you are right! That is almost always the case here. When it stops raining, it breaks out in a fit of sunshine, whereas, you will stay overcast the rest of the day. And you are right, it makes a huge difference!

Have a most fabulous day!! Thank you for the well wishes!
