Collaboration for Peace – 26

Posted on

Candy and I hope you find some time to slow down and marvel at the everyday bumps in your life.

 

 

Ordinary Marvels

 

I longed for beauty –
collecting it in the things
and people surrounding me
filling the shelves of
my life with shiny knick-knacks
discarding anyone, anything
that didn’t sparkle
and when the glimmer, shimmer, glow
began to fade – showing itself
a temporary pleasure
I began to wonder at the
ordinary – to marvel at the
bumps and thorns that
make life real
