This May feeling

On waking up this morning I realized that May has rolled into my life again. I stretched and slowly came awake to a sense of Joy. as I know this special May feeling was starting to bubble up in me again. It is a feeling of hearing the birds singing and the flowers budding and the trees sprouting their leaves with the dogwoods and other trees blooming and nature all a blush with its fecundity. The song I hear is not a Hollywood or Bollywood number but a full throated celebration of life that enthusiastically says that yes love is in the air and we are in for the best times of our lives.
I reach across the empty bed as I realize I have slept late, and now I cannot hold my love close or say to her that this May will be different. We have become so tied up in the daily routine and care that we have forgotten that deep sense of belonging, that blessed us in our earlier years. This is May 1, 2016 I want to scream, and it is here only for us. Come with me and sing the songs of life again, and feel the joy of life coursing through our veins, and every single cell in our body is pulsating. with the force of the universe around us. This primordial feeling of when creation first started is still in us and we are the highest creation of its evolution.
So this May feeling is in me and I sweep my body and the aura of just being here and now is upon me. I feel the soft cotton of the sheets and the support of the pillow under my head. There is an awareness of the rise and fall of each moment as it enters my life and space and then departs and I now blend it with my May feeling. We make our life into what we want it to become and so let this feeling of joy spread. I let the vibrations go out from my body and mind, to all my loved ones so that they may feel it too. My fellow creatures reciprocate my vibrations and the universe and I are enclosed in this cocoon of reality that is only of this moment. We are one again.
So I decide to let these good vibrations go out to all of you. Please hear the birds sing, watch the flowers and trees bloom, the animals play with their young as May is a time of life. Let your bygones be bygone and start a new chapter. Love with all your might and bring happiness and joy wherever you go. Those small dreary actions that make up your daily chores will get done but remember that is not your life. Your life is to hear the angels sing in their clear voices a primordial song of love and faith. Let your heart soar this May to the heavens and spread some love around you. Unravel all those bonds of care and let lose the spirit that is truly you and is the source of all that is good in this universe. Love yourself first, so that you may learn to love the others around you.
This May feeling has me upbeat and I spring from my bed but my slippers are missing. I walk barefoot and know that this is a natural state, and I can live with it. Each step I take is taking to my goal and when I see her, I will ask her for the pleasure of sharing this May with me. I am sure she will look puzzled and think if I have lost it again, in my old age? This May feeling will engulf her I am sure, and we will open the windows and let the birds sing and the flowers bloom in our life again.
