O Beautiful Day!

by Rosalyn H. Marhatta O, beautiful day I tuck you in my heart and take you everywhere. When cumulus nimbus clouds threaten thunder in the blackening skies And jagged lightening strikes at the heart, I take you out and feel your heat upon my face As a balm to my spirit.

This is great. I love the referemce to "cumulus nimbus" clouds. It stirs the meteorologist in me! I'd love being able to hold a beautiful day in my heart for those times when I need cheering. I love this poem!

Very contrite in words, but overflows with meaning and heart. Not an easy thing to do. I love your poem.
