Mario in the Morning

Mario in the Morning

When you are in Love with the morning,
You are in league with the eagle.
Everything about the morning
suggests promises,
things you can count on to rise with you….
whether it be a stick,
a branch or a log
floating down the river as we watch with coffee,
thinking we could be the same…
the same as letting life and love take us,
the sun being there to lift us,
the birds to spirit us.

What is this thing?

It is the Way, the Way to Glory.
Paint your day, write your way,
plant the seeds,
so they are here to stay.

Watch them all return to you.
The colors in your life,
the words in your mind,
the desire in your fingertips,
let them go toward good.
