146/366 - Mind Magic

2012.05.25
pixel
There are days that I just lean on a telephone pole and look at things and think and wonder. I think I am an expert at that activity.

Lesson Learned:
Stop.
Stand still.
Relax.
Look around.
Look some more.
Relax some more.
Close your eyes.
It is yours.

Magic Street

There is a magic street -
It is nearby – with lights…
Lovely trees, flowers – and…
A glow when twilight arrives.

You can’t live there…
Only there to be passed by –
Reminding onlookers...
Magic exists – if only in the mind.

lukesmom This photo is to my faves! And I wish I could get back to mastering the activity you talk about. I used to be able to do that but now it's run, run, run. But I do enjoy observing, especially people, when I am able to slow down. Nice post, Dan!
