Even rocks pray. First look at the picture from left to right. Then lean your head way to the left. Now look at the picture. What do you see?
Wonderin’ if the perplexing pressures of life
will ever leave?
Wonderin’ if I will ever recall what it used to feel like
to freely breathe?
Wonderin’ if anyone really cares about
the countless tales of my sorrow?
Just wonderin’ if I really believe that there is
A day after tomorrow?
Wonderin’ if I’ll ever run out
of tears to cry?
Wonderin’ if my phantom dreams
will take winged flight
through invisibly painted skies?
Wonderin’ if the world as I know
it will drink in the words what I yearn to tell?
Just wonderin’ when all these tears of wonder
will fill the bucket of my empty well?

|Omygod. Cynth'ya, this blows me away. As for the photograph, what a find!! Assume everyone sees a bird lying half in and half out of the water -- p e r f e c t. H a u n t i n g. "Gift" is not strong enough. T h a n k y o u. 'Pea' <3|

|You have the gift, the ability to wonder that allows us to be more than just animals bickering and snapping amongst ourselves; to look up at the heavens and see more than just blinking lights, to look into another's eyes and see through into that other's psyche. Never quit wondering.|

|Just beautiful! I wonder if, before we can to earth, we really understood how unforgiving, and yet gratifying life could be. Love you!|
