I See Right Through Me

from the top
of the ferris wheel
i can see my house
and all of those finger smudges,
those sticky, innocent little imperfections
the same ones that drive me crazy at ground level,
somehow when i see them from up here, from this lofty perspective,
they give the edginess of my world a more blended, softer focus
and i realize that they are a beautiful and essential part of my surroundings.
Peace ~ Writer Rene
lovely, Rene…yeah, you blend…
hang this on the fridge, toots, the ride is over.
and as pretty and precious as your words are, they do not clean the house.
plus, in order for you to realize the beauty of your surroundings,
 it is essential to be able to actually see out of the windows.
Especially that storm door window,
there’s nothing beautiful about bird poop.

  1. You MAKE me smile, Rene…From sweeping poetry to the humorous mundane–you demonstrate in both your extraordinary versatility as a writer! Terrific! I especially love the Ferris Wheel image…I'm going to be riding that one for the rest of the week πŸ™‚ After all, I prefer to ignore the smudges πŸ˜‰ Think I'll take off my reading glasses…what I can't see won't disturb me,(laughing). ~Janine XO

  2. Pearl said pretty much exactly what I was going to.This has happened before…Hugs and Irene Cara,Annp.s. Bet she has never used THAT salutation πŸ˜‰

  3. Love the sentiment. It's a peace-rene-ful way of looking at and appreciating your world. I hate that you topped it off with a self-critique, but you do what you gotta do. Cheers,Casey

  4. Casey,it was kinda meant to be a joke…failbut that struggle really did go on this afternoon inside my head :)It's hard dividing up the time between what you want to do and what you need to do.I just wanted to convey that struggle in a humorous wayPeace ~ Rene
