Blue ripples

We kick our feet about,
splashing through this thing called life
blue skies and oceans deep
with sun rays beaming through morning clouds,
we live the almost same moments
with each rising morn,
breathing in the air
and slipping invisible gratitude notes
into the thick fogged air.
We smile at the little things,
seeing new and old sights as we pass on by
sometimes registering the images
yet often lost in wandering thoughts
floating on a mind of waking.
It is here we can come to be
happy or sad
never knowing where the day may take us,
we strive to stand tall,
to do good,
to share some joy and love
with those with empty pockets and hearts,
we feel our lives keeping tempo
with the feet that move through each second
and carry us forward into another new hour
blessed by the sights, sounds, and scents
of this place we call home,
and of the soul we feed with life.
