Sky fire and the minutia of existence

February 19, 2015

I saw a sunset.

The tourists saw a photo op.

The artist saw inspiration.

The sailor saw a compass.

The bats saw an alarm clock.

The children saw a bedtime alert.

The deer saw a dinner bell.

The city saw a light switch.

The old man saw time flying.

The cows saw a call to come home.

The whippoorwill saw an orchestra conductor.

The security guard saw a warning.

The farmer saw a time clock.

The lovers saw romance.

The sisters saw a call to prayer.

The jasmine saw an invitation to unfold.

The flashlight saw a time to shine.

The weary saw the prelude to mercy.

The eastern sky saw darkness.


Everyone saw the sunset.

But only a few saw glory.

    BIG LIKE! Had night-blooming jasmine outside my bedroom window at our first Fla. home. Didn’t get the glory at the time but sure loved the scent.

      Jasmine is indeed quite glorious. What a heady scent!
