My eyes are drawn to the beauty
caught between the spaces
places where life moves through
tenacious and greedy for the beyond.
Gardenia blossoms now faded and gone
leaving behind their simple green
a reminder of new things to come
blooms of the future await.
Life moves like this at times for me
reaching for an available view
sometimes seeming so far from reach
but smile as I turn to see yesterday behind me
and a tomorrow that will be brand new
waiting in the space where I seek
all that I need.
