Oasis of Lovely

Amongst the towering walls of glass
the concrete and the steel
a sculpture hanging in the trees
is calming and genteel

Some will pass it unaware
heads buried in the sand
looking at the mobile glow
they carry in their hand

But some will see it hanging there
and pause a little while
to ponder at its meaning
and allow time for a smile

    Jem, this was so on the mark and lovely. We pass by such beauty in the world without a second thought. Those hurting and in need too. Seems people have a well developed “Ignore Switch”!
