They say that life will pass you bye if you're not careful. That there's no point in taking the time to notice something if you don't take the time to appreciate it!
Something easier said than done in this fast track age we live in. It's just amazing how fast time goes by; only one more year and I'll be a 22-century man. But what a day to be outside for once, just lying flat out on this small forbidden lush green carpet.
I wonder if this lone blade of grass I stare at only appears to be unusual because of my perceived thoughts at this time, maybe due to the cause and effects of my interests, or maybe my illusions of the future or my imaginations of the past, or maybe it's just from the position I've simple chosen to look at it.
Maybe it's the sun's ray's skipping across this last small patch of crisp foliage. Everything so magnificently magnified from my excellent vantage point, everything somehow strange, …..Different…Wonderful.
If I could only push my face a little further into the soft thickets, or maybe dig a small hole to lower my head and obtain an even better perspective. I'm sure this bold blade of grass would appear even more majestic, even more fearless, this noble prince that stands a little straighter, a little stronger, a little more determined than his forgotten brothers for the affections of their sun goddess.
Amazing how something so small and insignificant can prove to be so alive, so vital. One of the something's I would never of noticed, maybe never have appreciated.
