No need to fear -
That dreaded feeling of something not being right,
Nor indeed, in anyway adequate,
Let alone be what is not needed right now.
Come now, so pessimistic?
When roses can still be found
To be intoxicating like no other flower’s scent?
When grassy fields
So green as not to be possibly imagined?
When a child’s smile caused your heart
To miss a beat?
How then, can it be that we miss
The beauty in so many
Single, simple moments?
And the possibility of joy through
Stopping Mind’s busy thoughts
For a second to truly hear what a
A loved one is saying, or not saying?
Oh joy – yes be joy filled
With time taken to truly experience beauty
Found at every turn in nature’s
Vast and varied landscapes,
Inspirational in their perfection,
For all is sublime.
