Yellow window panes

The yellow window panes frame a picture

That reminds us of the grandeur of nature

The yellow window panes are the perfect frame

For the shades of yellow and orange in the sunset

We are moved by the harmony and beauty of what we see

 

The rich colours of the sunset above

The lush green landscape below

Separated by quiet and imposing mountains far off in the distance

Remind us of the beauty of what’s around us if we look out the right window

 

If we look out a window that shows the splendour of nature

And the colours and patterns that mesmerize us

Our heart is gladdened and we feel hopeful

If we look out a window that faces a wall

Obstacles are what we see

 

So let our mind’s eye turn toward that which is hopeful and inspiring

Of the many windows in our home, let’s spend some time

Looking at what cheers and encourages us

And helps us see what is possible

Golden skies

FB5C75DF-A257-433A-BB84-13F5072509F0
It’s a golden sunset

The sky is bathed in gold

The water is a shimmering gold

The clouds are ribbons of gold

Is this our earth?

Or another planet?

In this golden sunset there is serenity and beauty

There is a sense that all is well with the world

How can this beautiful place be riddled with anxiety and disease?

How can in this world, man not love his fellow man?

How can in this atmosphere, the environment be under assault?

In this magical place,  peace doesn’t seem so far out of reach

In this golden sunset all is well

All is right

The way it should be
