Gray Fog in A Sunshine World

A whiny January day,
cold, ungiving, unfeeling.
The sun comes up - I find a cave.
January and February 
are hibernating months.

He calls me again, his voice
a new pitch of buttery-yellow
over my gray fog.  Honey, he says,
I’m so excited about this house.
I look forward to us being there ,
starting life over this one last time.

I come out of hibernation,
greet the radiant sun, try to meet
expectations. It works like a charm.
I acted and now I am.

I love your spirit, Judy. I'm not as easily roused from the feeling of hibernating in January and February.

Ah the old "act as if." Glad to hear Bill is so excited about your new house.

Mary said...

Ah yes, Judy. "Act as if...." It so often works miracles. It so often changes hearts. It so often makes it possible.....

Victoria said...

I love the love between you and Bill. It really shines on the possibilities open to us humans.

That first verse was poetic perfection!

'I acted and now I am'......I have always 'kidded myself' and tricked myself into the mood I desired.

I identify! I always say I fake it yntil I make it.

I acted and now I am - that's good advice.

Oh that last line is one of life's greatest truths. Be the _____ you want to see. It works.
