A Better Day

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?

Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You’d better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short,

The music won’t last.

 

Do you run through each day on the fly?

When you ask "How are you?"

Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done do you lie in your bed

With the next hundred chores running

through your head?

You’d better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won’t last.

 

Ever told your child, "We’ll do it tomorrow?"

And in your haste, not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die

Cause you never had time to call and say "Hi?"

You’d better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won’t last.

 

When you run so fast to get somewhere

You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,

It is like an unopened gift…

Thrown away.

 

Life is not a race.

Do take it slower

Hear the music

Before your song is over.

 

"Slow Dance" by David L. Weatherford

 

Finally, the haze is lifted and I can see blue sky again. The air has been so bad for the past week or so and I could hardly see any blue sky. Thank god, it's back and I'm back hunting for more shots. Please enjoy the poem above. It was printed on a bookmark given to me by a dear friend. Everytime I feel down and blue, this beautiful piece reminds me of the wonderful things I'm currently blessed with.

 

Here's another attempt on IR photography.
