Serenity

Picture of sun streaming through trees and Quote by Lao Tzu
http://quotes.land/nature-doesnt-hurry/

Sitting here on my couch

Gazing out my window

Things quiet and serene

Sunshine steaming down

Upon the daffodils

Birds happily feasting

As squirrel scurries by

Nature seems content

Not a worry nor care

Oh that we were there

Syllabic Verse

“Nature doesn’t hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” – Lao Tzu

This quote was on the tag of my favorite herbal tea bag. Ah, yes, that mankind could model nature…

Not Carefree

In my imagination,
I see a day that’s red light free.
No stopping or starting,
Just cruising happily.
I’d reach my destination,
So very easily,
If I had nothing in the way,
To bring delay to me.
Yet life is not that simple,
And in true reality.
A few red lights are always needed,
To make me stop and see,
That often an interruption,
Becomes a great possibility.
One which could be missed,
by living a green light fantasy.
