The morning moon emits its lunar shades

as the street lamps dimly cast thier halogenic glow.

-

With the coming of dawn the dark grays of the sky

are being pierced

by an orange sliver coming out of the east.

-

A light snowfall is being held

by the trees, bushes and frozen ground

by a white blanket of spledor.

-

The stillness is screaming

Peace, Tranquility and Joy.

-

Hold it, for the beauty and serenity are here now,

if only for a brief moment.

Grasp this and don't let it go

for it can always be with you anytime anywhere

if you so choose.

-

The somber quiet opens my heart

to loved ones gone on,

hopefully to a similar place.

-

A pair of cardinals awaken

the still morn

with a correspondence that stirs my heart

with an Ocean of Emotion.

-

A fiery orb we call the sun

shows itself on the horizon

as I sit and ponder the glory of all creation

and realize just how truly lucky I am.

-

I stop and behold the universe humbly,

feeling miniscule and greatful to be alive.

-

With the right attitude and perception

towards where I am,

Not where I could be.

I've found I can find paradise anytime,

anywhere

even on a crowded

CITY STREET!
