My Random Observations of the Day


Lips accustomed to spewing sarcasm and criticism

Do not turn butter-soft when kissed


Life splashes us with sudden unexpected beauties

Rosy autumn apples reflecting in the cheeks of a child


Heaven opened its window and released to the earth

Ten-thousand golden angels shaped like leaves


When you came home today with arms over-flowing with awards

I did not love you any less, or any more


Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder

As I behold you walking toward me beauty has outdone himself today


Cyber-space is crowded with the lonely looking for love

And she wonders why he will not come to bed


Do not darken my doorway if you are seeking perfection

But if you are simply looking for a cup of coffee or home, come on in


J~


The other morning we all stood amazed, not at one, but two crosses in the sunrise.

  3. Oh, wow! And I don't mean just the photo. There are some very profound thoughts here . . . and oddly, each is the best.

  4. Thank-you Mike. It's weird how thought strikes suddenly and yet in slow motion...
