Land of Sunshine

Posted on


In this room

The sun always shines

Tiny smiles, twinkling little stars

All aglow against the sounds

Of first words and laughter

My clouds dissipate when I enter

For this is heaven on earth

The land of the most innocent minds

With so much time on their hands


I am greeted

Scrawny arms wrap around my legs

Wide eyes look up to meet mine

Am I worthy

Of all that they have placed in my heart?

We gather to watch the cardinals

Pecking at seeds through the snow

Our window, a floor to ceiling portal

To the world

All anew, nothing askew

Because this is the land

Of sunshine

For Open Link Night at dVerse…a little late for Mary’s poetic prompt which asked us to reflect on rooms or a room.Β I chose a room where I spend a significant portion of my day.

  1. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous…….!!

  2. I love that land of sunshine, like heaven on earth ~ What a lovely room to stay Mish ~

  3. And there it is! The truly happy-room poem I was searching for among the dVerse poems in response to the room prompt. (I suppose I could have written a happy one myself, but the searching was worth it to find this.) As for that question in the middle — “Am I worthy?” — anyone who takes the time to be with and love children is worthy of all they have to give. πŸ™‚ Peace, Linda
