Current Landscapes

The snow has covered everything
the air is crisp, and the wind is blowing.

My mind is distracted, but it is current
no flashbacks of the past. Just getting ready
for christmas and new years, and more snow.

I am Looking forward to seeing beautiful
landscapes appear before me,
and watching life as it unfolds around me
like a warm hug from a friend.

Each season flowing to the next,
and people coming and going in my life.
Noticing life and appreciating it more,
But being current is the key.

Looking out the window at the current
landscape keeps me present.
Being in touch with daily life and what is current
keeps me from dwelling in the past.

I have more time for myself and others
while putting old things where they belong.
In a box marked delt with.

I am Looking forward to viewing
majestic landscapes as they they appear.
Watching the world change as it surrounds me.
I am looking forward to being myself and
time being with my friends loving life together.

The snowflakes are gliding through the air
and landing softly on the ground.
I hear a loud noise and my mind is distracted,
but it is current.

Watching the sun rise and set with
brand new eyes.
With eyes that see a new world and
all the new colors within that new world.

More snow has covered the landscape
outside my window.
The air is still crisp,
and the wind is still blowing.
Trees are colored with bright lights,
and an old woman is walking her dog.

Standing together is so much better than hiding in the dark.
