Yesterday morning, I half opened my eyes, tapped my watch ……6am glowed at me…..closing my eyes again the dream I’d just had came into vision. I was the conductor on a tram in Blackpool along with playmate Agnes Houston and Donna, her daughter was the driver…..been having some crazy dreams lately 🙄
I half opened my eyes once more as I felt a strange glowing light in the room. A unusual warmth shone through the half opened door. I rolled out of bed, and went to investigate. The whole landing was filled with a strange light and as I walked through the to the back bedroom I could see why…
I wrapped myself up in my dressing gown, went downstairs, slipped on my garden clogs and outside into my garden and there the wonderful sight greeted me
The most beautiful sunrise.
I knew nature didn’t hang around. If I went to get dressed and venture out the moment would be lost. So I stood on the damp dewy grass and savioured the moment.
The flame coloured sky enveloped me from all sides
Mesmerised, the only sound was my own breathing and the birds calling to one another. So still, so beautiful
Light rain began to fall and I turned to go indoors, but there in the sky my second perfect start to the day….the most beautiful rainbow spanning the village from one end to the other
I looked back round behind me and the colours were gently fading
Could there have been a better start to the day?
As I went back inside, the rain falling steadily, an autumn chill running from the toes to my nose, I climbed back into bed to get warm. I gently dozed back to my dream of the Blackpool tram…
Waking once more, I tapped my watch. I’d only been asleep a few minutes – 06.45. Had it all been a dream? HaD that wonderful start to the day been a trick of my fading brain? I looked out of the window and a grey sky met my eyes. Rain was steadily falling and the world was waking as the odd car with headlights alight streamed past my house. My heart sank at the thought. I’ve found it hard to feel happy lately, sadness being the dominant emotion, but this bubble of happiness inside me somewhere told me I’d seen something really special this morning.
I opened my ipad, the photos having magically transferred and there was the evidence of the most perfect start to the day…it really had happened…
