Last night in the early morning hours, someone came into my sleep. I don’t know who, maybe God or a ghost from the deep. The wind howled and sent eerie sounds my way, but I decided to cuddle up and stay. The sunset before my sleep was pastel shades of pink and blue, sent directly from my grandma in heaven a new.

No way did I think a storm would disturb the night, but it never led me to feel a fright. I could not return to sleep for the spirits inhabited my mind, so I dreamed and tried to find, what the spirits were trying to say, as I started a brand new, beautiful day. As I walked from my home, I saw the pink and orange spreading across the sky, so I walked to the top of a hill to capture it before it went bye.

And then not at all by surprise, a new day began in Paradise.

Tiger and I don’t always see eye-to-eye on politics, but I love the poems, haikus and quotes he writes and posts online. They always bring a smile to my face and sunshine to my day. We share a love for the creatures and the beauty of the Earth, and we share photos of our surroundings and the creatures that cross our paths when we’re out wandering through God’s country.
