Continuous story… Chapter 3

Can’t help being joyful…

Today is an unusual day…so far. Secon day of the second month; outside on the doostep I felt it: something met with me; a light drizzle in mild air breathed my chin … distinctive fragrance fill my lungs. Down at the Ese strands… the majestetic mountain Vindreken is hidden in fog, but Ramnaberget stands clearly forth with its shiny slopes… the fjord is calm… small raindrops are playing tag with rings in the water … the sun is actually not visible at all, it only feels like. On the way home the sun breaks through like a star in the grey … ‘Only the rainbow is missing on a perfect day…. Just as the thought came … I turn… and there the coloured bow appears over Tjuatoten……

Nattfiol Oh, what a day I’ve got!
Now I really want
to start my work!

And look,
the sun shines like gold –

and joy is overtaking!
For I am happy, just happy,
Everything shines in the sun.
Look, butterflies dive
into dewy leaves

in slivery and sliky clothing.. 
Can happiness be described
in any better way?
