To Smell The Roses

Updated on April 28, 2017

As I sat writing in a contemplative mood

From the long, glass pane the sun streamed through

I turn my head to deflect the painfully blinding rays

The thought that I should have covering installed

popped into my consciousness but only for a minute

To be replaced

For my eyes bore witness to the light gray smoke

as gently it brushed the water in various points

billowing outward and upwards

I would have missed the seagulls in flight

and the blue-gray birds I have yet to identify

I would have missed the willow

as it swayed in motion to the gentle breeze

And below the sunlit water as it glistened and ripples formed

Had I covered those long, glass panes

I would have missed the continuation of Life

Written on the same Day I posted it to Hubpages March 2017.

The picture of the pup looks like my Daughters dog, I couldn't keep her physically unable to care for any pet's except maybe a goldfish.
