Images Waiting to be Seen


In a blink of an eye, the world can change

Stillness of smiles in the paintings, the dimples of their cheeks flash

Lyrics of music providing the ride into imagination, asking you to sing with them, and to dance

Mother Nature giving us the sustanence to thrive, live, breathe, and perceive beauty


In the blink of an eye, time is spent

Babies growing at an alarming rate

Seasons changing before the fun has been had

Final words left unsaid


In a blink of an eye, technology has emcompass attention

Television, Movie theaters, computers, internet, cellphones... how can we connect with so much information?

Sharing every moment with a picture, speaking every word through fingertips, eyes glued to a screen

Paintings gathering dust,

              music blurring into background noise pollution,

                              and the world becomes more comfortable within walls surrounded with A/C

                                             Words never spoken, eyes never met, fingertips typing away


                                                                 In the blink of an eye, you let life pass you by
