Look around that's all you need to do, to see what was created for you. Riches no money could ever buy, we see it all through our gift of eyes.
~ Quote by Poet ~
Just Imagine
Imagine life that has no pitfalls No shades of light or darkness at all No excitement, no purposiveness Only a perpetual dullness. Wouldn't we find it rather grim and flat Terribly humdrum to live so drat Imagine no trees, grass or flowers To admire on this planet of ours. So we must count blessings every day Family and friends made on our way The creator's staggering masterpiece Wonders of Earth, that will never cease. On life's journey we'll have made mistakes Many ups and downs, many heartbreaks Miseries come into life's jigsaw Then happiness walks back through the door. At times it happens, death comes too soon Gone to up where there's prepared a room Where loved ones rest and silently wait To greet our rise to the pearly gates. We'll not walk alone on this journey There's light that shines with love and mercy From the one knowing all human traits Who guides us with ineffable grace.

- A beautiful poem, Belle - I enjoy every day ... out in nature with my three dogs ... the four of us do not think about infection ... of course it is different ... we all have someone we miss seeing .. or hug ... but the days and months go by ... we can not stop living ... but we can do something else ... as your Quote says :) - Good luck in the contest :) - hugs // Anne-Lise :)

Hi Anne- Lise, it’s so good that you’ve got your three dogs to get out with, enjoying nature together. Yes we’re all missing our friends and family, let’s hope it all soon ends. Thank you, hugs Belle :-)

Hello Belle … you are so right about being surrounded by beauty and yet many don’t see it. Nature won’t stand still or wait for any of us - thank you Belle - Lindsay

I like your realistic approach to this topic, as you've set it forth in the first stanza. Life with no challenge is, indeed, boring and stifling. As you've rightly put it, with God's grace, we can meet and overcome those challenges. Superb contest entry, Belle! Happiness and Joy, Gershon

we are surrounded by so many beautiful things and often we hardly notice them. We are too worried with this pandemic. So we stay alone at home . Bring? I should say so. ~~

Truly the world is a beautiful place, from the ever changing movie in the sky to the wonders we see as we go walking by, at least we're allowed some daily exercise. Thank you ~~ Belle

Hi Belle, You have penned such a great message. The world would be same it didn't have all that you expressed in your poem. The highs and lows, good and bad, through it all we must count our blessings on the things that really matter. Best wishes in the contest. Have a great day and weekend:-) Alexis
