My eyes open with the light of the day.
My dreams of far off adventures slowly fade away.
I gaze at the sunburst hues that fill the sky.
I stretch, take a deep breath and sigh.
I walk and listen to nature as I pass a stream.
I enjoy the morning smells as I reflect on my dreams.
For life moves at a rapid pace.
I must pause to gather memories that put a smile on my face.
I continue by the stream and notice a flower near the shore.
I lean over and hold the petals a feeling I truly adore.
I lift the flower in my hand.
I lightly sprinkle water, as the petals bloom in a beautiful pink span.
I tilt the flower and drink while savoring the taste.
For not capturing this precious moment would truly be a waste.
There are so many things to admire with so little time.
I must open my eyes and focus on what truly is sublime.
