I will infuse my day with childlike glee,
and sketch to find the kid hiding in me.
Envision the climb I can no longer do,
but imagine the ascent as if I pursue.
I will plant a wee seed and watch it grow,
to appreciate the wonder for all tomorrow.
Take a moment in life to see what is there,
Nature so glorious and time is so rare.
Black or white is life as many will say,
But color and light is what I wish to convey.
Life is vivid to those so alertly aware.
Find abstraction in life and make sense of it all,
Or keep the mystery alive and surprise may befall.
Find patience to listen for what might not be said,
In pictures and prose inspiration, widespread.
Laugh, give and learn each wonderful day,
You might be surprised what you find I daresay.
Grab your bolo and cane, kick up your heels,
Find the goodness that life so graciously reveals.
