Look Around What Do You See
Author: Terrie*


If you were to sit out on your front porch
this very minute what would you see?
would you see the same as me?

I see..
a mommy watching as daddy teaches a daughter to ride a bike...
two friends playing catch

up the street I see a group of youth rebuilding their ramp for their skate board
across the street I see a couple head out to their early morning college class,

an elderly couple waving to me as they take their dog out for a walk.
I see some neighbors gather by to chat as their children board the school bus
across the way amtrak heading north on the track
a short distance away on the main street folks boarding the city bus

I hear our puppy at the door wanting to be let out..
as he sees a wee one jumping on to our porch...
running to me for a hug..
a child of a friend that has been gone for awhile..

it feels so good to get such a loving squeeze
from this little munchkin I think of as my own.
it seems like no matter where I look
there is always something spectacular happening..

especially watching from my own little porch ..
I'm glad I took time out again today to breathe what was in lifes air...
tell me ..
are you as lucky as me?
do you get to see the same as I?

------- Author's Notes -------

to sit back and observe what others have to offer is a beautiful sensation.. it gives so much to your own life...
