the distant drone of radios
feels like an intrusion,
disturbing the tranquility
of the moment.
Pages being turned
an elderly man catching up on the daily news
as a woman beckons to her child,
who, in his excitement and wonder
has wandered too far for a mother’s comfort.
stop and gaze through the lenses of cameras,
attempting to capture
the beauty that surrounds us.
As I look and listen
I reflect upon my life
realizing, yet again, how blessed I am
to be engulfed
by God’s power, presence, and peace.
