Oh Sweet Happenings - Poem by Edwina Reizer

Oh sweet happenings that make me dream
Of wondrous days and splendid nights
Occur within the smallest seconds
and the tiniest of all my sights.

I can see a butterfly with wings outspread
flitting from here to there.
I can watch a bluebird on a perch
then leaving it, soar in the air.

I can see a star as it blinks in the sky
and never look away.
I can watch the sun arise in the morn
and shine its warmth all day.

I can read your words that form on a page
and feel the beauty they are.
I can anticipate your thoughts in my heart
and know they're never far.

All of these may seem miniature
and yet these things that I do
are immense in their ability
to keep me close to you.
