taken for granted…

taken for granted – by Naomi Batten 21/3/12

Imagine if you were blind,
and couldn’t see the world,
how would you feel?
would you still take the world,
we see everyday for granted?
or would you see it from a different light?

would you miss the flowers in spring?
would you miss the waves in summer?
would you miss the the golden leaves in autumn,
would you miss the white snow in the winter?
i know i would that is for sure!
but do we take it for granted?

imagine blackness in everyday life,
imagine not being able to see the ones you love,
imagine the moments you would miss,
imagine life with out sight.
it’s very hard for us to see,
just what life really is to us!

But seriously we take things all to much for granted,
and never realize what we miss from this,
so from now on take in every moment,
don’t let one slip by you,
enjoy life to the fullest extent,
’cause that’s a better way to live life.

Winged Snowflake By David Ross

Via Scoop.itkeeping poetry going…
The gathering dark had blurred the naked trees standing blue-grey on the field’s edge. The air was heavy with falling snow that closely lay on field and hedge and swirled in ever-spiralling cones. Turning the corner on the hill my lights caressed the stricken oak. The yellow fingers caught and held a larger snowflake in the night; the barn-owl on his quartering flight.
