My vision hasn’t always been perfect, although my hindsight has indeed been 20/20 at times.
My farsightedness isn’t so bad that I’m not clearly seeing what’s in front of me.
I’m not so nearsighted that things at a distance are too blurry.
But what I do know is that my real vision, as utopian as it sounds, is perfect. For I’m sharply focusing on what is good, noble, and kind. I throw on my shades to block the harmful rays of divisiveness~my eyes focused on the prize; and clearly love will always win.
You may say that I’m a dreamer But I’m not the only one I hope someday you’ll join us And the world will be as one.” ― John Lennon, Imagine
“I’m sorry, I didn’t quite catch that. Could you repeat that?”
“Am I a WRI-TER?”
“I really couldn’t say.”
Couldn’t she just reply, “Anyone who writes is a writer!” (I’ll keep asking her; she changes her answers frequently)?
To BE a writer, I must write. For many weeks at the beginning of this year I had a daily prompt. It ended with a change of seasons. Finding a balance in life is not always an easy task; particularly when you have a true desire to do one thing well and often. Writing is listed in my “to do’s” for each week just like an item on a grocery list. And when a surprise gift of time occurs, I immediately feel the urge to write. Each morning, as soon as my prayer ends, the words swirl. It should be as easy as 1,2, and 3…just like A to Z.
What do you see from A to B?
Do you feel anything from C to D?
Can E and F stir your soul?
Will G and H make you whole?
I and J might not go well,
Then things might change with K and L.
Should M and N change your heart,
Use O and P and then restart.
You’ll learn again at Q and R,
By S and T, you’ve come so far.
Could U and V still make you grow?
At W and X will you plateau?
By the end who will you be?
Y all that matters is the Z.
Remember what you’ve learned and heard,
Use wisdom when you select your word.
What you live from A to Z
Will one day be your legacy.
