Thanks to the moon in the sky
I have enough light to illuminate the way
and thanks to the flowers in the trees
I have so many blossoms to brighten my day…

Breakfast on the terrace
surrounded by flowers

breeze in the air
perfumed and sweet

view of the trees
green and waving

distant chanting
in the mid morning heat

Spikey!
