Self Portrait Challenge #1: Introduce Yourself


When I wake I see a sleepy soul mate;
When I get moving I see a gym;
When I get home, all sweaty,
I see three little tiny people who are all hungry.

When I am in my home, I see antique wooden floors
covered in bruises and dents
rendering life that has made itself present
for almost 200 years within these walls

When I am in my yard
I see gardens awaiting my
digging, pruning, weeding, creating

When I drive I see trees, white churches
old houses, green fields, magnificent skies;
Beauty surrounds me on every bend.

When I look at myself I see
one who appreciates blessings,
and a faith that transcends trials.

Such detail here..."When I drive I see trees, white churches, old houses, green fields, magnificent skies; Beauty surrounds me on every bend." I love the way these words frame your line of sight.
