So much of life we all pass by
With heedless ear, and careless eye.
Bent with our  cares we  plod along,
Blind to the beauty, deaf to the song.

But moments there are when we pause to rest
And turn our eyes from the goal's far crest.
We become aware of the wayside flowers,
And sense God's hand in the world of ours.

We hear a refrain, see a rainbow's end,
Or we look into the heart of a friend.
We feel at one with mankind. We share
His griefs and glories, joy and care.

The sun flecks gold through the sheltering trees,
And we shoulder our burdens with twice the ease.
Peace and content and a world that sings
The moment of true awareness brings.

It's terriemae again. Wanted to reply on you beautiful poem and picture. I just want so badly to learn how to do things like that with the computer. I'm new to the computer world, self taught. All I can do is get on the internet and whatever it took to do my job as a deputy county clerk,[ auto tags, taxes, auto titles etc.] Who knows maybe someday everyone will see a picture from me. In the meantime, you continue and I'll just enjoy yours and others. Thanks for the joy.

You always have the most incredible poems combined with the most incredible pictures and they always seem to hit home, to strike some kind of chord - a harmonious and caring chord  = )
