Good thoughts are hard to find these days, but as I scrolled through my Facebook posts this morning, I saw a photo of blue-golden trees on a clear dirt road. The trees were leaning over in synchronized fashion. Looking at this picture immersed me in the thought that no matter how challenging our lives have been over the last nine months, there is still hope for us. There is still a reason to smile.  

I wrote the poem below to bring us to a better place. Close your eyes and enter a world of happiness and beauty.

 

A Topsy-Turvy World

There are still things

To feel good about

In this topsy-turvy world of ours…

 

The pictures captured by nature

Of tree-lined roads

 

The colors of autumn Being reflected upon a lake

 

The backdrop of pure white designs

On the morning after a winter storm

 

There are still things

To feel good about

In this topsy-turvy world of ours…

 

The wide-eyed wonder

Of a child's eyes upon a kitten or a puppy

 

Watching the rain falling from the roof

And the sound that is heard when it meets the ground

 

The scent and the color of a newly sprung rose

Sitting by itself on a flawless window sill in 

A cabin in the woods

 

The beauty of nature still surrounds us

Untouched by 

This topsy-turvy world of ours
