Lent 2014- 10th April: gazing at the view


One of life's 
simple pleasures
is of course
to gaze
forever 


at the view
of dancing clouds 
and rolling weather


of patchwork quilts 
knitted together


secrets hidden 
amongst the leaves


some to be seen 
on bended knee


or stood 
side by side 
in solidarity


much to behold 
in art
and science 


In history 
and mystery
of bygone 
year on year


there is much 
to gaze
and admire


warming views
of sandy shores


of setting sun 
in foreign lands


of rolling hills
in Gloucestershire


Maybe a view 
of grass 
and sheep.


maybe just 
a piece of cake
or icecream flake


Or Devonshire teas
with views of
sea and sail.


Or just 
a silly photo 
of Jo's snail


what do 
you 
simply
see 
that gives 
you 
pleasure?
