There is so much beauty in this world
From the simple flower
To the bricks so carefully placed
Hour after hour.
We are a creation of ourselves
From the moment of arrival
Until the golden silence
It is just survival
The Sandpiper twists and turns
From the heat that burns
Drifting sand and silent footprint
Is all that remains.

"We are a creation of ourselves"...and everything & everyone who touches our lives. Oh heck the funshine must be kicking in, just look at me finishing your sentences! *laughs*


Survival is one way of putting it I suppose. It does seem like a good word to imply struggle but what of the funshine huh? That isn't survival is warm sweet joy. I'll bet even the Sandpiper was happy before it got too hot. *smiles* Nice work John.

We need to appreciate the little things in life. We are all to busy complaining and not looking at the whole picture.Making a list of these appreciations daily makes us see just what we have in life.

A fantastic write John
