  Sun hides in darkness    
  Morning resurrects bright glow
  New day brings fresh hope

Just a gorgeous sky, Mickie! The colors are beautiful and the scenery is pretty. Happy skywatching and I hope you have a great Easter weekend.

The last line of your haiku reminds me of why I get up so early (between 3 and 4 a.m.): These are the most hope-filled hours of the day (to an early-bird anyway)!



I WONDER WHY

I wonder why
Some love the sky
But not the wind and rain.

I wonder, friend,
If sky will end—
It’s too much for my brain!

What a great Easter Morning picture... I was just listening to an Easter song called "Then cam the morning..." This picture reminded me of the song.

Hi Mickie ... Breathtaking! I was scrolling down and I love all of your posts this week ... the turtle and your flowers. Happy Easter to you too! No, I don't think that we are going to do anything very special this year. No full household this time. How about you?

God bless,

Kathy M.

Hi Mickie ~ thanks for the nice compliment on my header. Yes, that is one of my watercolors "Apple Blossums". Thanks for stopping by.

Mickie....You are so lucky to have a sunbonnet quilt made from your OWN dresses. That is truly a treasure. The fabrics in this old one were so similar to the ones my mother used when she made my outfits I just couldn’t resist it. Now to this shot...it is absolutely gorgeous. And I love your turtle from the day before. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. See you soon. Genie
