25 words: Stare and Wonder

Hungry morning.
I look out my window yearning.
I see a sky offering food for my soul.
I stare. I wonder.

How did it know?

Powerful little poem.

I feel the same way
when I look out my window
and see the water
constantly changing color

as a parade of boats passes by
I hear a lone seagull cry
and my heart answers

Food for the soul. A wonderful thought! Blue Popsicles? Cotton Candy and Lemon Drops? What a great way to start your day!

sky and i
same sigh
sometimes a cry

wondering why we are so far apart

You're not as far as you're thinking.
Listen harder while you're looking.

You made my day by saying that!
