I Hope – a poem

I Hope

I hope you open your eyes
And see the world.
I hope you see the wonder
Of the creatures
We share it with.
I hope you do not sleep
Through your life.
There is so much
To see and do –
So much beauty.
It is so easy
To sleepwalk
Through it all.
One day you blink
And it is over.

Opher 16.4.2019

I feel that so many people go through life without recognising the great beauty and wonder they are surrounded with. Every breath is amazing, every blink reveals splendour, every sound, every touch and taste is there to be savoured.
The universe is wondrous. It is so sad not to recognise that and revel in it. Nature is inspiring.
