beauty


Carpe Diem #1025 beauty



[..] "Let the beauty of what you love be what you do." [..]  
Rumi

What do I love?  My husband, son and his girlfriend, the five grandkids, sisters and the list goes on to include other family members.  Then there all the friends from childhood until today. Spending time with these people holds a beauty all its own.  The curl of lips in reaction to a joke.  The twinkle in the eyes when the favorite cinnamon rolls are uncovered.  The ease of just sitting together remembering adventures or having new ones.  New friends developed throughout the world through travel across the www.  But how does one 'do' people?

listening
familiar footfalls
on the porch
old swing creaks in time
with each tale retold
