When the Sun Shines

When the sun shines, Hope bursts out the front door with glee.

When the sun shines, Happiness returns from hibernation and greets others from a distance.

When the sun shines, Stress slides off the backs of the overburdened and overdressed.

When the sun shines, Anticipation joins the party to linger.

When the sun shines, Giddiness stares at the possibilities of spring rejuvenation.

As a child, I lived next door to the library, my mom owned a bookstore during my middle school years, and I've spent the last 22 years teaching reading and writing. Loving books was no accident!

  1. I love this poem. You are right about the transformative power of the sun. I especially love the imagery of this line- “Stress slides off the backs of the overburdened and overdressed.” Wishing you weeks of sunshine.

  2. Agreed! Your repetition here was powerful. All that figurative language allowed me to see positive effects of sunshine. This line resonated with me most, “Giddiness stares at the possibilities of spring rejuvenation.”
