There is something about enjoying a sunny leisurely time at the well known Dolores Park in San Francisco under a sunny, brilliant blue sky that releases all the burdens of life. I especially like this past Sunday there with a few friends sitting enjoying the scenery with the glory of the San Francisco landscape before us and the sunning beautiful people below us.
We were like children at heart again with no cares in the world. What a feeling! I cherish days like this with friends. This is when life hits its pinnacle. This is when life is just sweet.
I wish everyone can see San Francisco on days like this and see why I call it the most beautiful city. There is something wonderful and fanciful about this place.
There is a joy that comes to light
When sunny days appear
A sense of warmth, both bold and bright
Each time the skies are clear
A moment’s peace, a sacred calm
And stillness, all day through
We can behold within our palm
When sunshine is in view.
Enjoyment, in its purest sense
Can thrive on sunny days
For when blue skies and sun commence
Our cares are swept away
Basking beneath this golden glow
We shall forever find
The beauty we have come to know
Where once, the world seemed blind.
Much promise is held in the beams
When sunny days emerge
For in the rays, we see our dreams
As more than thoughts we’ve purged
A sense of hope, a sense of worth
And love to last, always
Shall evermore reign ‘cross the earth
When we seize sunny days.
