Sunrise; frost sticking its white fingers on a window,
just for a split second, it strives for your attention,
longing, begging you to notice the beauty it has to offer
before it melts away into the nothingness of memories, lost forever.
Nothing is more powerful than watching the fall of a snowflake.
When the ever-changing beauty raptures the silence of crisp winter
one can so clearly recognize the constant change of nature,
so present in the cycle of life.
Yes, the constant change life is giving us every second of every day,
no matter how difficult it might be for us to believe, or accept it.
Time after time, it drops right before our eyes…so clear, so diverse.
Time after time, we often loose sight of it’s magnificent beauty,
because it’s hidden inside something so simple, so unexpected.
But we; wrapped up in our minds, fearful to step up and take a chance,
don’t look closely, beneath the surface (beneath the obvious)
to awake ourselves to the glory that it’s showing us.
Love; like a crystal of a snowflake falls all around us.
Day after day, it presents opportunities, hopes and dreams.
It does so with such eloquent style, so insignificantly,
that so often we can barely spot it.
Whether we are outside, or at home looking out the clouds of grey,
it could be right there on the other side of the road or behind the glass window…
different, fresh, just waiting for us to melt away with them in the forever.
So, why not?
Why not take the chance….it is still here, waiting for you to grab it.
So, just for a brief second, awake yourself out of the vision of grey and lift your eyes up.
Indeed, the opportunity is only there for a brief moment, before it fades away,
but such is life….why won’t you grab a chance and melt away with it, making it last …before it’s gone… before it’s too late….
