Brilliance floats on the wind
as fluttering, you brush my hand.
Glints of sunlight shimmer and gleam
though all the color is not as it seems
Ignoring me and my electric eye
you dance, jump, caress the world.
Your velvet slippers and painted wings
speak to my soul of magical things
you have seen.
Zip, zip, flit and fly, a busy fellow
I wonder at the gleam in your eye.
What sights have you seen as you soar above,
When you sleep what is it your brain dreams of?
Did you know, do you see, you are not alone
in this world of eat or be eaten?
One smaller than thee is approaching you see,
Will you share or reject a fair bee
at your door?
Ghostly, she proves ’tis not only color
that defines magnificent perfection.
Shadow and light, much grander than hues
of oranges, yellows, violets and blues
Elusive, faster than the eye, the hand
that snaps the camera shutter.
Holding my breath I do click, click, click
as, too busy to notice, you lick, lick, lick
the sweet nectar.
Will you join me, then, for a sweet draft
from this perfect crimson cup of delight?
Come into my world, leave the big behind
as i show you the treasures you surely will find
What do you mean I don’t fit here
with the winged, the lovely, the delicate?
Look in my eyes, ancient worlds will appear
the print of my history as I shed bloody tears
What treasures are in your world? Have you looked at the small miracles lately? There are so many wonders that exist around us, waiting to lift us up-things that shine, glow, sing, flutter, crawl, jump and thump. When you slow your pace to keep step with the natural world, there is so much peace to be found. Time, space, and purpose lose all definition as you meld into the landscape. I challenge you to spend half an hour in your day just observing something in nature. When you begin to really look, you will be amazed at what is there, even in the busiest city. You don’t have to live in Costa Rica to experience Pura Vida. It lives in your mind, heart and soul. Make it happen today….
