Look Up! What do you see?
Sometimes it is a clear blue sky
Fluffy white clouds floating by
Rainbows spreading colors
Beauty, peace, and tranquility
Trees holding up the heavens
Leaves and branches swaying in the wind
You see the invisible wind, too
Imagination taking you to deep space
Stars glittering the darkened night
Yellow moon slowly moving by
Birds. Birds. Birds. Cardinals, Wrens, Doves
Eagles soaring up above
Geese migrating in vee formation
Visions of life and goodness
Sunshine and rain provide God’s gifts
Faith in an almighty being.
Look Down. What do you see?
Dirt becoming mud in the rain
Reeking garbage at the curb
Fences. Fences. Fences. Chain Link, Privacy, Barbed
Grass and the need to mow…again
Pavement: Asphalt, concrete and steel machinery
Vehicles in traffic, congestion, noise, pollution
Undone chores, stress, problems, anxiety, mistakes
People hustling and bustling about
Houses, monstrous money pits
Filth, insects, ants, bees, mosquitoes…BUGS
Problems, nothing but irritations.
Moral of the story: Look Up!
