Feel Jubilant – Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion
A-bout to break is the day,
N-ot until the cold night is over;
G-ood view of the new morn
E-ases the load on your shoulder.
L-ong night chill has turned
I-nto a one warm sunny day;
C-rimson sky up above
A-dds bright light on your way.
Contd below

For this exercise, I chose to celebrate the garden blooms and the slow but sure arrival of summer soon. Enjoy!

Feel Jubilant – Poem by Bernard F. AsuncionContd
E-ach and every joyful friend
L-ikes to share the happiness;
E-veryone wants to send to you
G-ood greetings and warm wishes.
A-nticipate the special moment,
D-ay six of the second month;
O-ne of the best events this year that will make you feel jubilant.
Bernard F. Asuncion

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Photo Challenge: Jubilant  Jubilant, adjective: showing great joy, satisfaction, or triumph; rejoicing; exultant. See also:The photo gives me a sense of that joy, even while I know that it captures only a fraction of her emotion. Let’s all end this week on a high note, with images that say jubilant.

    You’re so right. We should never be jubilant to the point of being reckless. We should rejoice without over rejoicing. I love the photos you selected for this photo challenge.

    The word jubilant comes to me and is often used around the Christmas holiday and on Easter. However, I would love to remind myself that this can be used to express at any time during any mundane day of the year too! Thanks for sharing those inspiring images! Love the flowers!

    Spring really is a jubilant season, with blooms bursting out in happy ways, as if they can’t contain themselves. Your images work well with your theme.

    Feeling Jubilant whenever I get a new follower or like on my blog! I am new at blogging, so everything is neat and exciting! I am thankful to everyone who helps me on this journey! As far as personal life, I am jubilant over most things that life has to offer. Being blessed in many ways and learning from the ways I should be doing better in.

    Success of one self wouldn’t be as great when it’s not shared with others. I like spreading joy onto others and seeing others happy is when real happiness comes in.

    What a lovely collection of florals. Jubilant is a great word. In the scriptures every 7 years, they would have jubilee which is kind of a forgiveness or celebration.

    The indentured workers/slaves/prisoners would all be set free to go home, land that was taken for debt would be given back to the owners, and all debt would be wiped out.

    Recently, I have been getting pictures of butterflies and plants. When I look at my album now, I feel FULFILLMENT and SATISFACTION. A kind of happiness that you keep forever.

    Nothing in nature expresses jubilation more vividly than bright colored flowers! You really have chosen the best possible things in this world to represent this theme.

    One of the things that make me jubilant is my family- my lovely wife and my clever son! They are just one of the things that are worth to celebrate!

    Jubilant to me can be and should be over anything that gives one joy and happiness! A friend, parent or a loved one to a simple walk in the sunshine. It is all up to that person!

    I love that first quote. All this week I’ve been feeling jubilant but of course not to the point of recklessness. When I’m happy though, I want everyone to feel it.

    I love how you tied in jubilance with celebrations, and then linked it up to garden blooms where we celebrate the arrival of summer. I also like the quote by Bob Bonde at the beginning of the post. Thanks for the reminder that we ought to be humble in our success.
