There are people who use complicated, obscure words to sound smart. And then there are people who use them because it’s the only way to communicate the complexity of their thoughts and ideas.
In the morning, I step out my front door
To see the diamonds shining on the lawn
With a cup of joe in my hands
Warming my fingers
I listen to the birds sing their song
Greeting the day in all its glory
What is it to be seen in the right way? As who you are? A flash of color,
a blur in the crowd,
something spectacular but untouchable.
