Wednesday's Poetry Day ~ Open Your Eyes

This is my latest poem written last Thursday. Every once in awhile my mind wanders and imagines there may be someone out there that hasn't actually opened their eyes to see what is really in front of them and this came to me in the form of the following poem.

Open Your Eyes

Have you ever seen the beauty of an evening sky
If you didn't, don't let an evening pass you by

Have you ever seen the mist on a morning dawn
If you didn't, then child you were never born

Have you ever seen a rainbow after the rain
If you didn't, you aren't as smart as you claim

Have you ever seen Autumn color fallen leaves
If you didn't, oh my, that's so hard to believe

Have you ever seen the snow of a winter storm
If you didn't, then again, you were never born

Open your eyes and look at life's changing world
Get out and see what you haven't seen before

The beauty of God's hand on this wonderous earth
All it takes is getting up and walking out the door.

Tuesday 4 Meme ~ More About You

I'm joining in on the Tuesday 4 Meme. I hope you do too.

More About You

1.   How late did you stay up last night and why?   Mostly every night I stay up until 1:30-2:30 AM and get up around 5:30-6:00 AM. I've been a light sleeper all my life and never have more than 4-5 hours sleep. Every so often if I'm not feeling well I will stay on my recliner and rest an hour or so during the day.

2.   If you could move somewhere else where would you and why?   There was a time when I wanted a warm steady climate. I never considered Florida (hurricanes) or California (earthquakes). but now I wouldn't move anywhere as I'm happy in upstate NY  (4 seasons, I would have preferred 3 without winter but you can't have everything)  with many family members.

3.   Which of your friends lives closest to you?   My two closest friends are my sisters. My youngest sister lives in my same apartment complex and my middle sister lives a mile away.

4.   Who was the last person you took a picture of?   Family members at one of our family parties.

Thought For The Day

Until the next time dear friends and family have a blessed week.
