It's elemental, dear Watson.

Day 27 — Book Writing/Birthday Month

The elemental things of Earth

that we are blessed with each day

on the planet but often take for granted.

A bed to sleep in

Air to breathe

Water to drink.

A place where you feel welcome.

A smile from a stranger.

A hug when you need it.

A good morning or sweet dreams.

A butterfly crossing your path

Seeing things you’ve never seen before

when you take a moment to look.

Coffee brought to you in the morning.

A sun-kissed day.

Late night machinations

And song.

Accomplishment

The doing of good.

Of sometimes simply

Getting out of bed.

Popcorn.

Tacos.

The sound of the surf on the sand.

Swimming in the ocean.

Birds to wake you.

A wake up from a dog licking your face.

My Pierre for me.

A walk in the park, the sidewalk

A country road

The mountains

A long deep breath of oxygen

From our amazing earth.

I loved these letters from astronaut Jerry Linenger

to his wife and newly born son from Space Shuttle Atlantis.

His words reminded me of what is elemental, dear Watson.

The elemental things of Earth

that we are blessed with each day

on the planet but often take for granted.

I'll be watching over you

Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
