I wrote this sitting in my garden on a grey, foggy autumn morning when I realised that the beauty of the scenery was in the eye of the beholder.





'Perspectives'

 

Some people can stroll down the street on a miserable day

and only see the smiles on people’s faces

Others trudge along, only seeing the grey concrete moving beneath their feet

Do they notice the nod and smile from the old man on the corner?

Or is he invisible because he is only beautiful on the inside?

 

Some might see the morning fog as a shroud of grey that settles in their soul

and stays with them even when the sun breaks through to warm their skin

Others see the fog as a beautiful mist that opens up to reveal the


brightness of life and a reason to feel good about the outside…on the inside.

This poem inspires. Having worked at a nursing home, I understand the beauty to be offered at any age. I wish everyone did. Love the ending on this piece! Hugs,
Sheila

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...what one esteems to be trivial and insignificant another can find and open a whole new world. Lovely poem and so true...enjoyed.
Blessings,

So many reasons why this can happen. Physical ailments, mental illness, low blood sugar, spiritual deception, differing personality types, bouts with gas, love askew, etc. Like snowflakes, we all seem the same from a distance, but up close we are all so very different. I especially liked the line: "the morning fog as a shroud of grey that settles in their soul" Very Nice! I felt this line like dew in my soul! Regards Richard

It is all a matter of perspective and what we do to respond to what is before us; indeed this has a lot of wisdom, Annette. Thank you for sharing it. Love and peace to you,

Wonderful write, Annette. You are so right about this. We all have different perspectives in looking at the same thing, as we are all unique.
