Rose-Colored Glasses, My Life

Updated on February 6, 2015
Life is Beautiful

Once again

I wear rose colored glasses.

Where Life is beautiful

The air is fresh

And my Soul is clean.

Laughter cleanses my body

Love fuels my heart

And happiness pours from

My eyes.

Rose colored glasses.

The Love that I feel

Is a gift from God.

The man whom He

Has chosen

Personifies the music in my soul

And I smile.

      Linda, I'm always surprised and blessed when my older posts are visited.

      I have to agree with you. My brother is a fantastic artist. He's given a few lectures regarding pursuing art for the color blind. He's proof-positive that you can achieve whatever you want despite the odds.

      Wow! Your brother has quite a gift for color for some one who is color blind! Fabulous poem and painting.

      Rachael, what's incredible about my brother's paintings is he's color blind. BTW, I have an endless supply of rose-colored glasses. I have just given you your virtual pair!

      This is a very nice poignant poem. If all could see life the way you described it through your rose colored glasses, order up a dozen pairs and we'll pass them around. ;)

      I love the painting. Your brother is very talented with his choices of colors. You can actually see the strokes because the painting photographed very well.

      I'm slowly making my away around to my friends' hubs, and your title grabbed my attention. I'm glad I found this one :)

      Epi, I greatly appreciate the share. I originally posted this long ago and recently tweaked it so it would be included in the 'featured' rotation. It would be nice to have it read. You're the best! And thank you for the flowers. You've put a smile on my face and in my heart.

      As all of my hubs are my babies, I love saving 'orphans' like this one which deserves so many wonderful comments and perhaps I can start the ball rolling with a post and a link on my FB page for all to see and read my sensational Shauna. I also love to dig for buried treasure because all writers appreciate having someone dig back into their catalogue. Really love the painting at the beginning and the fact that you paint with words Shauna - I hope sincerely you are well on this Sunday and I am off now for a walk around the bay of my lake at lake erie time 5:39pm and 3 big hugs from Colin, Tiffy and Gabriel including virtual flowers to be planted in your mind's eye my friend
