Haiku #8

I stretched forth my arms
to the sky as rich sunrays baked
my brown skin creation-black

So beautiful! I hope you and the loved oned ones are well. Here we are all well. Happy spring may be coming soon. We had a teaser a couple of weeks ago, and now it is a little chilly again (highs in the low 50's) but that is not too bad. Soon enough it will be nice and warm again!

Is that your photo? It's lovely...being one with the land.
