taking time… by Toni Cross

 

Do you take the time

To find  beauty beneath the grime

Pausing from the fast pace

To find simple ethereal grace

Hear strings tuning in the whoosh of passing cars

Listen to earth’s orchestra playing the opening bars

From lonely fields of flowers

To skyscrapers glistening in showers

Harmoniously singing curve and  bending line

Heroic oak and romantic pine

Hulking and swaying metal bridge

Solitary goat on a woody sunlit ridge

Take a sighing moment

Absorb a majestic quotient

Of webby spider lace

And artistic graffiti face

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
