As the world around me gets busy disintegrating, my mind happily floats in the firmament. I'm holding on to arrested moments; my eyes filled with childlike wonder surveying my surroundings. The beauty of nature abound. I'm thankful for a sunny day that smiles in blooming flowers! As I bask in the glow of sunshine, I fix my gaze on marshmallow clouds drifting above me, willows swaying in the breeze. I hear birds cheerfully tweeting in rustling trees. To be able to sit lonesome and take a mental vacation, a benediction! Thoughts and quotidian woes that hold me in bondage are set free like butterflies at play in a lush green verdure. I'm blissfully lost in solitude just reflecting about life, and I'm filled with gratitude. It's great to be alive! mental vacation lost in arrested moments ~ a benediction. Submitted for...
