What do you see # 80 – A Roundup

♾♾♾

Plans to travel 
Plans to see the wonders of this world
All held on abeyance, we need to wait for the time
When it’s safe for us to venture out and explore
When we would be free again to step out
To a world that’s no longer hostile to human beings
A world where our transgressions are forgiven
And we are let out of our self-constructed cages
And then maybe.......
We can visit the Sphinx of Giza
Or the Taj Mahal
Or the gay city of Paris

♾♾♾

For the past few weeks, I have shared images of iconic places where I would like to visit one day. Sphinx is one of the wonders of the world that I long to see. So this poem reflects my desire to roam the planet freely!

Perhaps one day!

What do you see # 79 – A Roundup

♾♾♾

The beauty created by the setting sun and clouds in the sky

Just takes my breath away with its vivid colors

A scientist can easily explain how the graduations form

When the rays of the sun filter through the atmospheric obstructions

But no one can explain how it effects the heart and mind

Of an onlooker, who stare at this amazing sight, spellbound

What joy it brings to those fortunate enough to observe

Miracles of nature, every day around us

♾♾♾

What do you see # 78 – A Roundup

♾♾♾

I love you

And I love being with you

To share a meal, even a crust of bread

Is better for me than the most lavish meal, alone

Sitting by the roadside, a stark table set for two

Is what I wish above everything else, to be with you

♾♾♾

And keep it safe, bottled up, near to my heart

What do you see # 76- A Roundup

It sits on the shelf as a reminder

A reminder to me to be real good

Good like an angel, even if I can’t be perfect

Perfection is beyond human nature, but not kindness

Kindness to oneself and those around me, is easy

Easy to give joy, easy to share and care

It sits there with a serious look on its face

Reminding me to be good, as good as I can be
