Strangers but Friends

I seen the world
Through
Stranger’s eyes
Eyes that I have not seen
Never met
But they have become my friendly guides
Lands and oceans, mountains and valleys
I have travelled through their eyes
Ever thankful that from the comfort of my home
I have travelled far and wide
Thank you my friends
Let the words flow
Even if we never meet
Know that the bond is strong
Your words speak to me
In a way that my eyes
Will never be able to see
Before the inevitable happens
And my words stop
Let me say loud and clear
Thankful ever
To meet you all
Your words enlighten me
An education that is free
Knowledge I shall cherish
Strangers you are, true
But I shall never have
Friends better than thee


Dedicated to all my blogger friends, even to those that I may not see eye to eye.

Wide

Wide is the expanse of the universe
Insignificant we are, a mere dot
Do not even register in the big scheme
Endless journey, destination unknown

Wide open is this world of ours
Inviting all of us to share
Delightful offerings of nature
Enjoyment to everyone that cares

Wide rivers rushing down to merge
Into the bosom of wide oceans
Down will come the water as rain
Enriching the earth to be fertile again

Wide vistas encompass us everywhere
In our hearts why then have narrow feelings
Destruction of this only home of ours
Endangering the world, why to bear this curse

*************************************
Wide in everything is of course not good
In too wide a midriff we will face grief
Diabetes may lurk in the shadows
Ending our lifestyle as we know it
