The Poetry Bar

The Things I’ve Seen

my passion is a mission
documenting the sights in my life
this profession of no words
this visual description of where i’ve been
lets me travel to far away places
and leaves me breathless with gratitude
for the lives lived elsewhere
enhance my own

‘leaves me breathless with gratitude, for the lives lived elsewhere, enhance my own’….these words truly touched me. Many of us get so caught up in our own lives that we do not see how the lives of others affect us and ‘enhance’ us. A good reminder for me and for us all to live in gratitude. And so I thank you for bringing your life into my own. Many blessings to you!!
