The Most Profound Gift

Sight
A sense
I cannot
perceive its end.
To view life's beauty
And grandest majesties
Mountains, birth, sky, a poem
The face of my love all his life
To see is boundless in the extreme
Sight; the most profound gift ever given.

5th place in the "ETHEREE ME" contest by Andrea Dietrich.

    Great entrance for Andrea's contest, Amy! I would be completely lost without my eye sight - couldn't draw or paint or taking photos etc. Thank you so much for your kind comment on "Days" and have a great weekend...Gert

    Max, life is obvious, and so broad. My point is to not take advantage of the things we are blessed with in life.
