It’s spring and the beauty of nature abounds
As I look up at the trees framed against the white clouds
and the blue blue sky, the trees have never looked so green
A gorgeous red cardinal flys past me as if to say
hey we too have dressed for the occasion.
I seem to notice beauty wherever I go
it’s certainly in the faces and the smiles
of our grandsons, and in the new found elegance
of our granddaughter riding a pony bareback.
I catch myself as I turn to tell you
how my heart feels as if it has been gripped
and my breath taken away by the sights
that have never seemed so precious before.
They say that when one looses one of your senses
That the other senses are heightened
and that could be true now
or it could be that in the past
That you were my focal point
and everything else was just a blur.
Whatever the cause
of the veil being lifted from my eyes
I know that you would be, that in fact you are
pleased and are celebrating the fact
that your Danny is finding beauty in the world a
week before our anniversary.
