Poem Commentary

Take time to relax and sit back to observe the wonder of life - seperated from the stress and the strife

Contentment


I can see a beautiful flower and not have to remove it from its earthly bed

 

I can gaze upon a tree and not have to climb it

 

I can look at a field of grass and not have to make a path

 

I can behold a magnificent mountain and not have to conquer it

 

 

Some days I am content to just sit without a worry as I take in all of God’s beauty

 

Today is one of those days...
