ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
Our vision becomes clouded and sometimes we just don’t see,
That there’s so much more out there, then one lonely little tree,
The world is full of magic light, of power in every deed.
But our eyes become unfocused, we cannot intercede.
Our days become so busy that we often miss the boat,
Get out of bed, get dressed and fed, forget to wear a coat,
We put on shoes that hardly match and socks – one short, one tall,
We speed to our destination at someone’s beckon call.
We need to take a little time to look around our space,
Enjoying things we rarely see because of the rat race,
It only takes a moment – look beyond that single tree,
The vastness of a forest stands for every eye to see.
Grasp hold of all that’s out there, gaze beyond periphery,
God sculpted every mount and hill, created every tree,
The waters He laid carefully to nourish every seed,
His love apparent everywhere, He gives us all we need.
