Sunlight Blessings

Sunshine dances like diamonds on a rippling lake,
And multiplies the merriment in waterfalls’ laughter;
Sunlight throws rainbow ribbons across dark clouds with silver linings,
And splashes through wide windows to make my living room glow;
Sunshine plays with the shadows of tree branches onthe labyrinth path,
And spreads around the world from a small crystal sphere,
Sending out sparks of love’s warmth to settle in the hearts of all Earth’s
