Sprinkle my path with pretty leaves and flowers.
I want to look at water and not towers.
Some color to brighten my day.
A place where the birds come to play.

I will walk to the end of the pier.
I’ll gaze into the depths without fear.
For I will only see fish swimming by.
And not any monsters lurking nearby.

Time will pass slowly and must be savored.
Whoever comes this way will be favored.
I think it’s only prudent and fair
To share my secret with those who care.

    Reblogged this on As I see it and commented:
    This poem from our friend and author Susan Leist really resonated with me today! The flow of it is so smooth and I love the imagery.

    Thanks for the encouragement. The picture made me feel relaxed and want to write. I have a photographic memory, and pictures seem to help me write.
