DID YOU SEE THE WORLD TODAY?

DID YOU SEE THE WORLD TODAY?

I awoke this morning to the sunlight along with the musical tunes of nature,

Scrub jays of beautiful blue flying here and there collecting their peanuts.

I watch the Squirrels running, playing, and eating breakfast set out for them,

Life is awake, plants and trees, flowers and green surround from all around.

In the distance I can hear many flying creatures, the echo of a dog calling out,

The blue sky lay like a blanket over what has been created from the master.

Did you see the world today, did you look around to all that may be found,

Did you see the hills and green grass dancing back and forth.

Did you see the day change from yesterday, the world change before you,

Did you see the world today, see it before it disappears and goes away.

  1. Driving to and from work I always try to be mindful of all the beauty that is around me. I think as driven human beings, we tend to neglect that. Love you work. Thanks for liking some of my work.

  2. Wow! That was like a smack to the head for me. I’m sitting outside of my house, nature right before my eyes, but until I finished that poem and lifted my head to look at it, I didn’t know what was there! How I missed everything around me, even though I’m so close it. Thank you for that smack!
