Just Enjoying It.... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

The world is not a book
so we do not read it as pages
neither is it a laboratory
for mice and guinea pigs
so we do not experiment
upon diseases and illnesses

it is as we see and feel it

some forest of trees
a sea of oceans
deserts of sands somewhere
a sky of stars
multiple shades of horizons
bounded by mountains
a field of grass and
a patch of flowers and
birds and dragonflies
cows and dogs and horses
and peacocks

we are here to gaze and
we live this life and savor
what is laid upon us

and then we pass away
